Day 2. Reinhard Heydrich

Czech wwii memorial tour

REINHARD HEYDRICH
ONE OF THE MOST EVIL MEN WHO EVER LIVED. We retrace his final trip beginning from the location of departure (Heydrich’s former residence), through to observing the place where the actual assassination occurred- albeit now part of a dual carriageway. We devote a full day to cover the events leading to the assassination attempt, culminating at the church where the Commando’s  made their last stand. We have made an unexpected embellishment to this tour. Read all about it here.

Day 2 pm.  Trip to Prague “Kbely” aeronautical museum .

Continue to Kbely Museum (Prague) For this short journey we use the highly efficient underground Metro system which takes us to within 10 minutes of the museum. We then take a taxi which delivers us right to the museum entrance. We use the same mode of transport to return to the centre.
