"Old astronomical clock" Old-Town Hall & Astronomical Clock Tip by extrajoce

  Old astronomical clock
by extrajoce

Favorite thing: It's hard to be in Prague without knowing about this clock. It is the oldest astronomical clock still in operation, and so, every hour on the dot, little figurines of saints stroll along while Death rings a bell.
It is a tourist classic, so there'll be lots of people from various tours, but kids and grown-ups all love it, especially as it ends up with a crow singing, which sends everyone off laughing.
