"Symbol of Prague" Church of Our Lady before Tyn Tip by Emmi11

Church of Our Lady before Tyn, Prague: 134 reviews and 222 photos

For me, this amazing building symbolizes Prague - even more so than the Charles Bridge or Prague Castle. Lots of cities have bridges and castles (!), but just as there is only one Eiffel Tower or only one Empire State, this magificent building is unique and my most favourite view in Prague.

The best time to view if from the Astrological Clock side of the Old Town Square, after dark and of course (there's a theme running through these pages!) during the winter!! The twin spires of the church have an orangey glow as though fires have been lit, and if you are lucky you may even see bats between the steeples.

I can't tell you much more than that, but this place has really struck a chord with me - see for yourself!!

Pictures coming soon

Address: Tynsky chram.
Directions: Near Old-Town Square. Once you're in the square you can't miss it!
