The square surrounding Prague Astronomical Clock is one of the most crowded spots in all of Prague, attracting tourists eager to synchronize their watches with one of the world's oldest timepieces. The town hall, founded here in the 1330s, houses the old town's main tourist office and has art exhibits on its first two floors. You can take a guided tour of the building to see its council chamber and assembly room, noted for containing exquisite mosaics from the 1930s. Be sure to climb the building's Gothic tower to see the inner workings of the famous astronomical clock, considered one of medieval Europe's major technical achievements. The clock's decorative figures put on a lively show on the hour, so time your visit if possible. You can plan Prague trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • On the hour everyone meets at the clock for the “show”. Well don’t hold your breathe as it is probably the most underwhelming event anywhere. Yes the medieval clock is stunning and very impressive...

  • The place is a mandatory place to visit for me when i go to Prague. The clock is beautiful. You have to check when the small puppet of apostles will walk in the clock. I love being there. It was very very very crowd and a lot of people there, made us difficult to take picture properly. But i can understand and i still love the place. The atmosphere is so different and unique. Maybe it will be good idea to come there in weekdays.
  • A place with so much history and mystery... obligatory stop in this city
