What to Do, See and Eat in Prague, Czech Republic

7. Church of Our Lady before Týn

Legend has it that the Tyn Church gave Walt Disney the inspiration. If you take a close look at the two spires on the church, you’ll realize that they are not symmetrical. In fact, they represent the masculine and feminine sides of the world. This is characteristic of Gothic architecture of the period.
