Kobilisy Anti-Fascist Resistance Memorial

This grassy quadrangle of earthen embankments, ringed by trees and overlooked by old 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 was Nazi bureaucracy – the dates and times of their executions.

In Czech: Památník protifašistického odboje v Kobylisích

Address: Žernosecká; (take a tram No 10, 17 or 24 to the terminal at Ďáblická)
