Full description
You'll begin by entering the crypt where the famous paratroopers were hiding, finding panels with descriptions of their story accompanied by pictures. You'll travel with your guide who will explain to you the historical development from the early 1930s to 1942. You'll then enter the crypt where you will have enough time to explore on your own before traveling around the church upstairs to see the spots of the final fight.

Next, you'll visit the area where the high-ranked Nazi official Reinhard Heydrich was assassinated by the two paratroopers, Gabčík and Kubiš. The street does not look like it used to in 1942, now containing a small monument next to which you will talk about the moments surrounding the assassination.

Finally, you will drive to Lidice, a village which was burned down in June of 1942. The inhabitants were either killed on the spot or sent to concentration camps as a brutal Nazi revenge to the assassination and killing of Heydrich. You will discover a large memorial and meadow together with a statue of 82 children, representing the kids from Lidice that were murdered on this occasion. At the conclusion of your educational experience, you tour ends in the Prague city center.
