27 May 1942 saw the assassination of
Reinhard Heydrich in Prague. He was one of the most powerful German
officers and principal architect of the Holocaust. The 2 Czech
resistance operatives involved (among others) were Jozef Gabcik and
Jan Kubis, who hid in the church of Sts Cyril and Methodius. The
Germans discovered them and after a long battle they killed
...and our hotel was the Royal Court, basic but
adequate and within walking distance of I P Pavlova metro station
Outside the church with flowers under the
opening where they flooded the crypt and from inside. Visiting the crypt
is a must.
Steps down into the crypt the Germans used
Quite a busy city, with a nice castle and
cathedral over the river - very reminiscent of Budapest
Jozef Gabcik sculpture in the crypt of the
church which is FREE to visit !
Wenceslas Square - main shopping area and guess
The Dancing House on the river bank and a
fascinating revolving head of Franz Kafka, the Czech Bohemian writer
C & A and Primark are immediate targets !
Astronomical clock on the side of the Town Hall -
not as impressive as it's hyped up to be
We started our 3 day Prague trip (finally - no
thanks to Easyjet) we stayed the first night at Premier Inn J9 for Luton
