Photographer's Note

This is a blue hour shot of the the Týn Church in Prague. The construction of present church in gothic style begun in the 14th century and continued in the 15th century. The roof was completed in 1490s. The north tower was finished in 1466 while the south tower was not finished until 1511. The twin towers of church are 80 m high and are surrounded by four small spires. The towers are not identical. One of them is a bit more solid and it is said to represent the man. The interior is rather dark and mainly in Gothic style. In 1679 the Týn Church was hit by fire and the main nave was then reconstructed in Baroque style. Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601) is buried in the church.
