The displays depict the entire sequence of events leading to the death of six brave Polish Resistance paratroopers who were airdropped to kill the leading Nazi in the area - Heydrich.

This is a beautiful, peaceful church away from the crowded tourist area but easily within walking distance. It was built in the 1800s but copies older styles. It is across the street from a park and a nice playground. The neighborhood seems to be up-and-coming...More

I was sad that the church interior could only be seen through a glass-door. Apparently during the service times (announced on the info-board) you can go in. For the history of the country this place is important and worth a visit. This is very modest...More
