St. Nicholas Church dominates one corner of the Old Town Square. For many this is the most important church in Prague.

Tyn Church, Old Town Square

Tyn Church, or The Church of Our Lady Before Tyn, dominates one side of the Old Town Square. The twin towers of this powerful looking Gothic church (with a Baroque interior) can be seen from all over Prague.

Although the origins of Tyn Church (Týnský chrám) date back much further, the present high-Gothic structure was founded in 1385 as the main Old Town church, all of which makes it an impressive venue for classical concerts.

St. Simon & St. Jude Church is set in a peaceful corner of the Jewish Quarter. It is a large church built in a mix of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles.

Concerts are held just a few times each month. They are organised by the Prague Symphony Orchestra, so the musical standards are excellent.
