Týn Church, Prague, Czech Republic

The Church of Our Lady before Týn dominates the Old Town Square with its wonderful facade of spires, pinnacles and the golden statue of the Madonna which sits in its crown.

The Church was started in 1365 and is largely the same as it was when it was compelted a few years later. It became associated with the Hussite movement and eventually became the main church for the Old Town.

Sadly, for the tourist, the Church is only open for prayers so you have to make do with looking at its beautiful exterior.
