The Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock in Prague

You need not look further than the Old Town Hall and the Astronomical Clock to know that Prague is the city to beat in terms of architectural marvels and rich Bohemian culture.

The beautiful city sits at the banks of River Vltava. Its quick adoption of the Western Europe Culture while still maintaining a link to its Eastern Europe roots has endeared it among travellers as the place to go when you want to have the best of both worlds.

The Old Town Hall

The Old Town is a Medieval Settlement in Prague. It was a creation of the ancient dwellers of Prague. It was separated by a semi-circular moat and wall whose both ends connected to River Vltava. Now inside this district, there was a City Hall and Town Square. It was on this City Hall that the Astronomical Clock of Prague was installed.

The Astronomical Clock in Prague

This clock was first installed in 1410 by clockmaker Mikuláš of Kadaň and Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy at Charles University, Jan Sindel. It is mounted on the southern wall of the Old Town Hall in the Old Town Square. If you love old things, this is as old and as scientific as it can get.

Get to Prague and get to see the third oldest astronomical clock in the world and many other attractions.
