Old Town Square II

Another photo from the heart of Prague, which I already showed one more time a year ago, but that time from ground level (https://www.trekearth.com/viewphotos.php?l=7&p=1568493). This photo was taken from the top of the Old Town Hall (https://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Europe/Czech_Republic/photo1584159.htm). At first I hesitated whether I should climb the tower, because I had already climbed several others during my stay, but when I saw that a lift is installed inside the tower, the decision was made quickly.

Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí) is one of the most famous parts of the city. The square is dominated by the twin towers of the Týn Church (Týnský charm, officially: Church of Mother of God before Týn), a Gothic church with 80-metre tall twin towers, which was completed in the 1450s. To the left of it you can see Kinský Palace (Palác Kinských), a Rococo building, built by the Golz family between 1755 and 1765, later owned by the Kinský family and now part of the Czech National Gallery. In the left hand foreground you can just see a part of the Jan Hus Memorial, unveiled in 1915 and dedicated to Jan Hus (c. 1369-1415), a Czech theologian and church reformer.
