Prague 1 - Old Town Square - Church of Our Lady before Týn The church was begun in the 14th century on the site of an original Romanesque chapel dating back to the 12th century, and which had served as the church for foreign merchants staying at the Ungelt.

During the Hussite wars the Týn Church was the main place of worship for the Old Town and played an important role in the Hussite cause. From 1427 Jan Rokycana, later elected as Hussite archbishop, served as a priest there.

According to legend, in 1437 the timber meant for the construction of the roof of the main Hussite church in Prague was used to build the gaols for the Hussite leader Jan Roháč z Dubé. 20 years later the timber used to build the roof was to have been used for the stage at the wedding of King Ladislav Pohrobek. The young regent died just before his wedding day.

Prague 1 - Old Town Square - Church of Our Lady before Týn - interior The interior decoration of the Church dates chiefly from the 15th century. Visitors will find a Gothic stone pulpit, a Gothic tin font, statues of St John and the Virgin Mary and a statue of the Týn Madonna with Child, which dates back to around 1420.

The most beautiful stonework in the church is considered to be the canopy above the tomb of bishop Lucián z Mirandoly by Matěj Rejsek (builder of the Powder Tower) from the end of the 15th century.

We can also find statues by Jan Jiří Bendl and paintings by artists such as Škréta – the main altar of the Ascension of the Virgin Mary, the altar of St Barbora on the right and the Annunciation, St Vojtěch a St Joseph are all his works.

In the south nave and on the altar of St Anne we find paintings by Brandl and on the third pillar in the church there is a carved Renaissance altar from around 1600.

One of the most celebrated works of art in the church is the tomb with a portrait of Tycho de Brahe, the world famous astronomist and astrologist who worked at the famous court of Rudolf II.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (14,7 MiB)

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.
