Monument to the Heydrich Terror

This monument of the Orthodox Church is situated on a raised terrace, with Baroque frescoes and a garden edged by a decorated fence. However, it wasn't until World War II that the church gained its fame. Here in the crypt, after assassinating Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi Governor of Bohemia and Moravia, seven Czech resistance fighters hid with the help of the Czech Orthodox community. However, they were betrayed from within the church by Gestapo, and after a violent gun fight, they committed suicide to avoid enemy capture. Today, the crypt is considered a National Memorial dedicated to these patriots, although the crypt can be visited by appointment only.
