"The Bells, the bells" Old-Town Hall Tip by Xdrive

Old-Town Hall, Prague: 153 reviews and 273 photos


Every hour on the hour, from morning until night, hundreds gather at the astromical clock on the Old Town hall in the centre of the old town square for the 'procession of the Apostles' Lasting approx. 5 mins, this procession sees the 12 apostles nod as they pass over the clock on the hour as a bell rings somewhat mobidly. The clock was damaged by fire during World War II, and was restored to its current condition after the war. However, beside all the advertisement, I found the hourly display is not that attractive, but the clock looks very interesting, worthwile to go there to have a look and take picture.

Address: Starometska radnice, Starometske namesti.
