Týn (Ungelt)

Immediately behind the Týn Church is the picturesque cobbled courtyard of Týn, more commonly known as Ungelt.

The complex was a trading base of German merchants in the Middle Ages, and a hospice, church and hostel were established for them. Ungelt became a very successful international trading place, and its name Ungelt (“no money” in German) was used as synonym to deter attackers. Later, traders moved to Prague Castle, and the court became a palace. Recently restored, the complex is now home to upmarket shops, bars, restaurants and a hotel.
