Operation Anthropoid

The Operation Anthropoid with its course and consequences is the most heroic and tragic strory in the modern Czech history. The Czechoslovak paratroopers who assassinated the Reichsprotector Reinhard Heydrich in May 1942 and died in the crypt of St. Cyril and Methodius Church in Prague city center are seen as heroes today.

Firstly you visit the Crypt of St. Cyril and Methodius Church in Prague where the paratroopers defended themselves for hours and at the end rather committed suicide than to be captured by the Nazis.

From the city center you drive to a curve where the Reichsprotector Reinhard Heydrich was assassinated. The third stop on your path following the traces of Operation Anthropoid is the meadows of Lidice. You visit the memorial which spreads on the place where the village Lidice used to stand.

The village was completely burned down as a reaction of the Germans to find the paratroopers. Most of the men, women, and children from Lidice died.

On your private trip you have a local guide who tells you everything. Between the sites you are driven by a driver in a comfortable car. You meet your guide at your hotel, the tour ends at your hotel or in Prague city center.
