The town hall as a symbol of the self-government of the Old Town of Prague was built in 1338 and in the course of the following centuries was gradually expanded. The astronomical clock (Orloj) dating from 1410 has figures of the twelve apostles appearing in the tiny windows on the hour during the day, and mechanical figures of Vanity, Greed, Death, and a Turk in the upper part.
