Owner description: One of the symbols of Prague, the Church of the Virgin Mary Before Tyn is the dominant feature in the Old Town. The church was built in the 14th century and used to be a primary place of worship for foreign merchants visiting the city.

Beautiful gothic structure. A nice escape from the crowds of the Old Town Square. Definitely take a look.

The main entrance to the church seems temporarily closed; there's a paper sign with an arrow pointing to the right. Where do you enter? We went twice on 2 separate days and almost didn't find the way in.

There are 2 ways to enter the church: through the bookstore near the main entrance (left side of complex) or through an archway in the low buildings in front of the church. On this Google map, look for the red umbrella or the words, "Caffe Italia". http://goo.gl/maps/Py5ge

At night, when the church is illuminated, it is so beautiful! Those dark spires and stone walls, so mysterious. My son asked if it was the inspiration for Hogwart's Castle in the Harry Potter series.

Had planned on seeing the inside, as the outside is spectacular, but it was closed! According to the guidebook we had, it should have been open; it was a Tuesday, no reason to be closed. So didn't

The all thing is in the exterior! This facade might have been known all over the world!!! And it is really superb at any time You are in Prague!!! It's first thing to be seen in Prague, to my opinion:).

The exterior is incredible but the interior was nothing special. There's a suggested donation to enter, which you pretty much have to pay. Also you can't take pictures. However the exterior is just INCREDIBLE.
