Tynsky chram (church of Our Lady before Tyn) is one of the most important churches in Prague. It was built in the 14th century, the characteristic spires were completed in 1460. In 1679 the church was reconstructed inside in Baroque style. The result is a rather dark nave with a number of magnificent Baroque altars.

Highlights of the interior are the tombstone of Tycho Brahe (often with Danish flag), a Gothic crucification group left from the choir and the High Altar by Karel Skreta.

Address: Tynsky chram.
Directions: Near Old-Town Square.
