Memorial sights in Prague
- Sort by:
This grassy quadrangle of earthen embankments, ringed by trees and overlooked by apartment blocks, was once the Kobylisy Rifle Range. More than a hundred Czechs were executed here by firing squads during WWII. Today it’s the site of a national memorial: a huge bronze plaque lists all the names of the dead and – such is the legacy of Nazi bureaucracy – the dates and times of their executions. Take tram 10, 17 or 24 to the terminal at Ďáblická, then walk west for 800m (about 10 minutes) along Žernosecká.
