   The Church of Our Lady before Týn is a dominant of the Old Town of Prague. It is located directly at the Old Town Square. The church was built on the site of the Romanesque church.
   The church comes from 14th century and has got two towers 80 m high, topped by four spires.
   The towers look the same, but they are not identical. One represents the woman and the other (a bit more solid) the man.

   The northern portal is an amazing example of Gothic style. The main entrance is on the western side of the church and it is hidden in a small passage between the surrounding houses.
   Inside the church there is the oldest pipe organ in Prague coming from 17th century.
   In the church there is also a tomb of Danish astronomer Tycho de Brahe.
