Built by the Hussites in 1385, Týn Church, or The Church of Our Lady Before Týn, is the grand Gothic structure that dominates Old Town Square in Prague. Legend has it that this 14th-century structure with its Baroque interior gave Walt Disney the inspiration for the dark castle featured in the famous fairytale, Sleeping Beauty.

    In my book, Prague is one of Europe's premier tourist sites, with so much to see and so much to do. Virtually the entire city is one historical gem after another, filled with a treasure trove of centuries-old architectural wonders.

    The Týn Church is without a doubt one of its finest. The impressive twin-spired exterior is grandly Gothic yet it delights visitors with a robustly baroque interior and richly adorned rococo altar. Strikingly beautiful, the church is an inspirational monument to mankind's creative genius.

    Prague should be on every bucket list! As for me, I'm looking forward to a return visit, soon I hope.

      You are right, but there are much more beautiful places to visit than Prague. Tourists love "Prague" but this "Prague" means only city centre which is old, magic, beautiful..thousands of tourists, expensive and luxurious food, accomodation (…) it's true, but try to visit other parts of Prague..

      Try to visit Southern Bohemia (southern part of Czech Republic) or other places, such as Karlštejn, Český kras, Koněpruské jeskyně etc. There places are BEAUTIFUL! In other words, places outside of Prague are inexpensive, beautiful, interesting and for the money you spend in Prague in two days, you can spend a whole week in other parts of the Czech Republic. And much safer.
