The Prague uprising was an attempt by the Czech resistance to liberate the city of Prague from German occupation during World War II. Events began on May 5, 1945, in the last moments of the war in Europe. The uprising lasted four days, ending in a ceasefire between the Czech resistance and the German army which decided to leave Prague the same day. The next morning, the Red Army entered the nearly liberated city. The day is a public holiday in Czech Republic.
