Head on into the center of Old Town and if you see a crowd of people looking up at the side of the Old Town Hall then chances are you’ve found the Astronomical Clock in Prague.
The clock or Orloj as its called is located on the southern wall and is made up of three components. The Astronomical Dial, The 12 Apostles and the Medallions of the Zodiac. On the hour you are greeted to the parade of the 12 Apostles and other animations before the show concludes with a special character that you just have to hear for yourself.
It’s nothing to write home about but a worthy stop off while you grab a Trdelník to fend off the hunger.
Maybe if it doesn’t rain, I’ll go there tomorrow!
So did you go Dustin?
Beautiful! I want one. 🙂
Something tell’s me Andi you don’t have a wall big enough for it.
That is quite a clock and just 1 more reason I’d love to visit Prague.
Yes there are lots of reason’s to visit Prague. This wasn’t one I knew of before I got there but definatly worth checking out.
I’m just chilling out here at the moment, I’ll probably do some sightseeing in a few days. Been checking out different cinemas and doing a bit of hiking outside of Prague so far. That and sitting around during the day 🙂 I’d like to go find a cool cafe and write, but they smoke in the cafes here argh!!
