Create an itinerary including Church of Our Lady before Tyn
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.

  • Very gothic from the outside, very baroque from the inside, and we'd already seen lots of baroque church interiors.

  • A beautiful building, but one of the coldest welcomes from a church. There are signs stating "no photos, no eating, no drinking, no touching and no talking". The seating is barriered off other than a few seats in a corner, there's no welcome for those wanting to pray. A genuinely quite depressing welcome despite the beauty all around.
  • An absolutely stunning church inside & out. The organ music is amazing and completes the atmosphere, making it just perfect. A must visit!
