View from the Top
Posted by Avital Pinnick on November 7, 2013
By now, this cathedral and palace must look rather familiar. 🙂 At the top of the Old Town Hall tower, you can walk all the way around. The view on a clear day is superb. I should have realised at the time how lucky I was because the following week the skies were very hazy.
The twin towers of Church of Our Lady before Tyn.

At first I thought that these buildings at the edge of the square were built in front of the entrance of the church. Nope. You enter the Tyn church by walking along the alley narrow beside the pink building, through a tiny courtyard, and into the nave itself. Apparently there were fewer building restrictions in the 16th century.
