Tyn Church

One of Europe’s most striking religious buildings, this Roman Catholic place of worship stands proud in Prague’s Old Town Square.

With its Gothic spires, its Renaissance façade and its baroque interior, the ornate Týn Church is a captivating piece of architecture, and is rightly one of the most frequently photographed spots anywhere in Prague. A Roman Catholic place of worship that has been active since the 14th century, it is a great place to visit if you’re interested in history, architecture or religious art.

Going by the official title of Our Lady Before Týn, the church is best appreciated from the Old Town Square. Its famous exterior has to be seen to be admired properly. Walk around the perimeter and look up to see the two towers which reach as high as 80 metres, both adorned by four thin spires. Behind the church you can see the Ungelt, the walled merchant’s courtyard.

Step inside and you will appreciate the fine interior decoration. Bear in mind you have to enter through a concealed door facing the square rather than through the main entrance.

Masses are held at the church every week, and you are welcome to go along to one of them. The experience makes for a tranquil retreat from the crowds and the noise of the Old Town Square outside.

When services are not being held, it is still a great place to explore. Among the fascinating pieces on display is the oldest pipe organ in Prague. Decorating the altarpiece, you’ll also find paintings by Karel Škréta dating back to the 17th century.

Situated in the Old Town Square, the church is free to enter. Note that in the building, photography is not permitted. The church is open daily, but opening hours vary so check before you pay a visit. It is easy to reach by metro and by tram.
