The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.

    An absolute Must-See in Prague.
    The memorial and museum are small and involve a lot of reading, but it’s absolutely worth a visit. Entry is free and it doesn’t take a lot of time, but the historical and human significance of the place is great. They’ve done a good job of creating a memorial that is poignant, informative and surprisingly tranquil in the middle of the city.

    Hidden gem of Prague
    Prague has many beautiful museums, memorials and historical buildings, but this church with its crypt is really unique. We should remember those young brave Czech and Slovak men. Spend tíme to read interessting and sad history of this place in first room. Staff is very friendly and helpful to explain some facts. The entry is free and you can take a brochure and some pictures. It is great that it is open for public. Anyone interested in this history, can also visit Lidice memorial near Prague.

    Very moving memorial
    We were pleased to have visited the place where those heroes paid the ultimate price for their bravery. It is a deeply moving place and the information provided was excellent and very educational. You really do get to walk through history and feel it. There is no entry fee as of Feb 24. This is a must for anyone keen on WW2 history or Prague history in general.

    Fascinating
    This is worth visiting. We stopped in front of this site at the conclusion of our WW2 and Communism tour with Real Prague Tour Guides ( definitely take that tour), and our guide gave us some history of Operation Anthropoid and suggested we go inside after the tour. Glad we did. There were interesting exhibits and the crypt itself. Please note that the crypt is behind a heavy metal door that you will need to move (it was not so obvious that you could enter the crypt, but you can).

The memorial site is dedicated to the resistance Czech fighters that were killed by the Nazi during WW2 for their role in the assassination of Gen. R. Heydrich, the "Protectorate" of Bohemia and Moravia in Prague. Heydrich was also a major player in the forming of the "final solution" of the Jews in Europe. Visiting the basement of the church where this memorial is reminded me of the same feeling I had visiting the Arizona and the Alamo memorials. Make sure you see and read the excellent displays before you enter the crypt to fully appreciate the history and timeline leading up to the killing and capture of those involved.

We had watched Anthropoid (film with Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan) so were familiar with the story. To see the memorial under the church, reading the detailed history and seeing the artefacts was both informative and moving. Then to move into the crypt was chilling - a real piece of history! I would totally recommend.
The memorial is located just round the corner from the Dancing House. It doesn't cost any money but there is a donations box. For a real piece of WW2 legend i suggest you make a visit.

I expected quite a lot from this but its such a small museum I was left a bit disapointed im afraid. Only really one room to look around so it really doesnt take very long. As a bonus its free. Definitely wouldnt be a museum to pay for (as a non czech).

After you have visited the church, go down to see the crypt, where the paratroopers were hiding and died during the siege.

The front room as you enter is set up as a small museum. The entrance is free, but there is a donation box there.

To actually enter the crypt , you must push at a heavy door that closes completely behind you. Chilling and claustrophobic effect.
It's been 75 years this year since the war ended. The Nation will remember their Heroes for years to come .

A memorial that has a special importance in the history of the Czechs, placed in the undergrounds of a church. In 1942, the members of a commado hid here after killed Reinhard Heydrich, the interim protector of Bohemia and Moravia, a kind of governor appointed by Hitler. Waffen-SS troops besieged the church but failed to capture them alive. Some were killed in battle, others committed suicide.

A short walk from the dancing house and a must see in my opinion both for those who are familiar with the story and those who are not.
Plenty of information within the exhibits and a short film to watch too. You also have access to the crypt where the Czech heroes fought their last stand.
Interesting and moving. A highlight of my trip to Prague.

An excellent exhibition making use of period footage to support the detailed narrative on display. The crypt is very moving, and the stories of the men involved simply but powerfully shown. Free entrance, and you can also visit the church above. One of the highlights of our trip.
