Tyn Church

Prague Tyn Church Tower from Town Hall

This church was founded in the late 1300’s and although it’s the gothic towers outside that are the star, it’s worth looking inside too if you happen to find it open.  Make sure you return to the square at night to see the towers lit up too.   This is an extract from our free Prague City Guide.

From the outside, take a look at the towers closely and you will see that they’re not identical.  The Church of Our Lady Before Tyn is usually open to the public from Tuesday to Saturday between 10am and 1pm, and between 3pm and 5pm.  Interior renovations are currently underway and access may therefore be restricted.  If you can’t get inside, we’d recommend that you walk around the rear of the church, to see the incredibly tall windows.  The Prague In One Day Sightseeing Tour features the Tyn Church.
