Experience a medieval world wonder – the Old Town Astronomical Clock!
Every hour, hundreds of tourists from all over the world with cameras at the ready gather in front of the Old Town Hall to enjoy a fascinating mechanical performance which in the Middle Ages was considered one of the wonders of the world. The Prague Astronomical Clock, which for 600 years has been one of the greatest treasures of the city, still amazes people with its procession of Apostles, moving statues and visualization of time like no other instrument in the world.

La Torre dell'Orologio nella Piazza Vecchia di Praga è affascinante per l'originalità e la complessità dei quadranti e dell'architettura che li ospita. Inoltre, allo scoccare di ciascuna ora, alcune sculture che contornano i quadranti si animano e le finestrelle che li sovrastano si aprono e fanno vedere il corteo dei Dodici Apostoli che sfilano a due a due.
