You will also see the hospital grounds (outside) where Heydrich was hospitalized and later died – Bulovka . You will then continue your drive outside of Prague to the village of Panenské Břežany where Heydrich and his family used to live. If there is a little time, we can visit the local museum that documents all this. Our next stop will be the village of Lidice, which was completely burned in retaliation for Heydrich’s death. Here you will see the location and hear the incredible story of the village and its inhabitants.
