Church of Our Lady before Tyn, Prague

4.6
Boasting a pair of unmistakable spires, Church of Our Lady before Tyn is one of the symbols of the city, dominating the skyline of its old town. Originally built to service primarily foreign merchants visiting the city on business, the church features a Gothic exterior and Baroque interior. You may have to stand far back to fully appreciate the building's 80 m (262 m) high Gothic towers, completed in the early 1500s. Much easier to see from a comfortable perspective, the interior notably includes a Rococo altar and the tomb of Tycho Brahe, a distinguished astronomer and royal consultant.

  • Truly stunning old Church right by Old Town. Thought it was a Castle at first but it is truly great when you see it up close.  more »
  • As soon as you arrive in Piazza Vecchia or at the astronomical clock it is difficult not to notice it with its majestic towers! Too bad that the main entrance is hidden from the restaurants that are in the square and that inside it is forbidden to take pictures. In the majestic church of Tyn is buried a famous Danish astronomer (in fact it is exposed the flag of Denmark near the altar), which was the master of the famous pupil Kepler and his theories on earth and sun. The windows and the long aisle are exceptional. Concerts of classical music are held periodically inside the church.

  • Went there on Easter 2019. The place was so joyfull. So many people came to celebrate the tradition. The Church was closed. But the plaza was wonderful.
  • Reminded me of Harry Potter. It is such a focal point in Old Town Square! Amazing city!
