Kostel Panny Marie Pred Tynem, Prague

4.7
Boasting a pair of unmistakable spires, Kostel Panny Marie Pred Tynem 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.

  • It is astronomical in the plaza of the tentacles, and is difficult to not sit rapt, staring at her. Most beautiful evening that day, in my opinion. Its interior is accessed by one of the sides of the square, and inside houses history. Gothic and highly recommended a visit. You are not allowed to take pictures inside.

  • The curiosity is that to reach the entrance of the Church passes by a corridor, she gets behind some small buildings.

  • One of the most impressive Gothic religious buildings in Prague is located in the Old Town Square. Impressive by day, equally so at night. The interior serves as an extensive gallery of Gothic, Renais...  more »

  • One of the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe, the twin spines are just spectacular and eye catching. Definitely should not miss this attraction. Head to the old town hall where you can view the whole structure of the cathedral as well as the old town square
  • Nice tourist attraction. Very showy with gold decorations
  • This is one of the most beautiful cathedrals I've ever been in. I was hoping the mass would have been in English or Latin, but even in Czech, any Catholic can follow the sequence. Perhaps a translator app would have been useful to read along. If you wish to take communion, you are expected to place a host in the bowl, something we don't typically do in the states, but it makes sense. The pews and kneelers are incredibly uncomfortable, but not so much as, say, being nailed to a cross. It's unfortunate that this amazing work of architecture has had buildings encroach upon it so, unlike the one in Pilsen, but the interior remains a sight to see.
  • Beautiful and jaw droping. It is probably the most beautiful building in Prague after St. Vitus Cathedral. We also managed to see the interior during mass, not worth it. The mass is only in czech, no music with it, and the interior artwork of the building is underwhelming.
  • Wow. One of the best looking churches I been in. Gothic archetecure is very popular in Prague and the this church is probably one of the best Gothic archetecure achievements.
