One of the symbols of Prague, the Church of the Virgin Mary Before Tyn is the dominant feature in the Old Town. The church was built in the 14th century and used to be a primary place of worship for foreign merchants visiting the city.

Small but quite beautiful if not a bit vulgar. There was a lot of gold. The surly priest was at the front making sure you made a "donation". It's only after that you're told that no photos are allowed. Was ok but would have been...More
It was a bit difficult to find the entrance to the church, once inside, I felt as though we were in a different world. The gold and silver (especially) used for all the intricate details was amazing. Packed full with plenty things to admire, this...More

A visit to old town square is a must, so much history there buildings are ornate, go up the clock tower for a better view, visit st. nicholas church and other buildings with history, purchase a guide book

One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the
modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
