Church of Our Lady before Týn
This fairy tale Gothic church with its twin towers is an Old Town landmark and its ominous presence has dominated the square for centuries. Most noteworthy on the inside is the tomb of Rudolf II's personal astronomer, Tycho Brahe. When lit up at night, it adds to the magical effect the city has on most visitors. Work on the church began in the first half of the 14th Century, but it was not until the end of the 16th Century that it was completed. Its 80-meter (262.5-foot) towers topped by four small spires were customary during the reign of Emperor Charles IV. There is no entry fee, but a donation of CZK20 is recommended.
The entrance to this cathedral is a hallway behind a new age CD shop and 2 cafes. Hard to find, but just follow the golden madonna on the steeple, and you'll find your way in. The admission is free, and you really can only go into the back of the church (as it is gated), but it is breathtaking. If you want to go in and vie wthe entire church, you must buy a ticket to on eof the concerts there. But if you stand back bythe Astronomical Clock in the evening when the sun is etting and everything turns pinky-orange, you can get a fabulous photo o fthe sun reflecting off the madonna on the steeple. Just lovely. A quick 15 minute stop here will do ya!
