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 themselves.

...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
Jan Kubis
Jozef Gabcik sculpture in the crypt of the church which is FREE to visit !
OPERATION ANTHROPOID

 

Wenceslas Square - main shopping area and guess what -
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
