Church of Our Lady before Tyn (Prague)

Kostel Marky Bozi Ored Tynem

 

Church of Our Lady before Tyn is a historic Christian church that dominates the complex around the Old Town Square. Its multiple steeples stand out with unique appearance. Its construction began in 1365 originally as a Roman Catholic Church, but soon it became involved in a Reformist Hussite movement in the early 15th century. The Hussite King George of Podebrady took his Ultraquist community in Church of Our Lady before Tyn. The Hussite movement was crashed in 1620 and in 1621 communion chalice of the church was melted down and made into a statue of the Madonna. Additionally Catholic armies removed letters of the slogan "Truth prevails" that hanged above the entrance. Church of Our Lady before Tyn is also famous as it is a final resting place of famous astronomer Tycho Brahe.
