Description

Discover a fascinating journey through time in the heart of Prague, a city that experienced the 20th century with unparalleled intensity. From dark moments to instances of hope, Prague fought for its independence, was occupied by Nazis and Soviets, and finally regained its freedom. Explore crucial events of the past century: from the daring assassination of the Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia, Reinhard Heydrich, 'the Butcher of Prague,' in Operation Anthropoid, to the crypt of the Church of Saints Cyril and Methodius, where the seven national heroes who participated in the assassination hid and perished. Learn about their last days in hiding, their failed escape plan, and the courageous uprising of the Czechs against the Nazis in 1945. Delve into Communist Prague to relive an era as turbulent as the Nazi occupation. Explore the famous Operation Danube, the Prague Spring of 1968, and the Velvet Revolution of 1989.
