This was the one "must do" visit on our trip, and as it was only a short walk from our hotel, we did it on our first afternoon in the city. The outside of the Cathedral speaks for itself, walk up the steps to the...More

A must for any visitor to Prague who has any interest in recent history. A very low key and sobering witness to recent European history

It is a very nice experience in St Cyril and St Methodius Cathedral as it describes the world war 1 resistance in prague. The exhibition was a very moving experience. Jan Kubis and his teammates were in this church when they were killed in combat.

Very moving experience retracing the world war 11 paratroopers and resistance in Prague. Going into the crypt you can feel the tension that existed so eerie like you are really there all those years ago.

Having recently seen a film about the WWII paratroopers and resistance in Prague, we were keen to visit this church. There is a very moving exhibition in the Crypt where some of them died.

Jan Kubis and his team were holed up in this church and were killed after a fire fight. There is a Memorial for the brave hearts at the Cathedral at Resslova.

If you know the history of Czechoslovakia during WW2, it really is a must see. Knowing the sacrifice the soldiers made, it feels like you become part of history.

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town

Just be aware it closes promptly at 5 pm so you really need to get there by 4 pm to give yourself time to see everything
