Prague, Czech Republic

Places to visit

Astronomical Clock

Old Town Hall
Times: the chiming times are every hour on the hour from 9am to 9pm

Don’t bother trying to read the time on this clock (look to the clock above it for the time) which is a mechanical marvel, constructed in 1490. Crowds gather before this clock to witness Death ring a bell, inverts his hourglass and the 12 apostles parade through the windows then a cock crows – all in the space of 45 seconds. Despite this, the clock is a ‘must see’ for all tourists of Prague and quite the puzzle to figure out.
