Kostel Panny Marie Pred Tynem, Prague

(1,200+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Church
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.

  • Went into this building what a marval how would they have built such a beautiful structure. I think the view is better from a distance than close up  more »
  • Beside to the astronomical clock, this masterpiece is even more beautiful at night! The building is beautiful when it lightens up!  more »
  • Yes, look carefully at the 2 towers. One of them is smaller. Yes, they ran out of money and finished with a smaller one. Called 'Adam' and 'Eve' (by our guide). Not the nicest church on the inside but...  more »

  • 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.
  • Like most of the churches in Prague this one also have a gothic look with stained glass windows. Great view especially from the old Town Hall tower across the market
  • There are so many amazing buildings in Prague. This Church is one of the most beautiful. Must see and visit!
