Church of Our Lady before Tyn

The Church of Our Lady before Týn a Gothic church located in the Old Town Square, Gothic Architecture can be seen all over Prague. It was founded back in 1385, in an era when Roman Catholics were brutally murdering the Hussites. It was during that time that the Catholic Jesuits took charge and the Hussites symbols were replaced with figures of Mary. The landmark is truly distinctive and the entrance is spread over 80 meters. It is said that Walt Disney took inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s Castle from the Church of Our Lady before Týn, which adds to its popularity. If you observe carefully, you will see that that both the spires of the church are not the same, and the reason is that they represent the feminine and masculine side of the world.
