The Prague Astronomical Clock has a lineage of more than six hundred years on the magnificent façade of the City Hall. From 9 am till 11 pm, this medieval timepiece strikes followed by the rhythmical procession of the Twelve Apostles. Locally known as Prague Orloj, this clock has an LED display screen on the south wall and has 3 components namely the statues of Catholic saints on either side along with a skeletal figure of Death, the Calendar Dials featuring medallions depicting months and the astronomical dial depicting astronomical details along with solar and lunar position on the sky. The Prague Astronomical Clock has animated figures of Vanity –a narcissist with mirror, Miser with bagful of gold, Lust with earthly luxuries and Death that strikes the hour bell.

Prague Astronomical Clock Reviews & Ratings

  • This is one of the most famous sights of the Golden Prague. The clock was first installed in 1410, witch makes it the oldest functional astronomical clock in the world. The whole building is astonishing but "The Walk of the Apostles" makes it even better. "The Walk of the Apostles" is a clockwork hourly show of figures of the Apostles and other moving sculptures. For some of you the only problem will be that the show is too famous resulting in a huge wave of people coming to the place every hour.

  • Def worth checking the world's third oldest clock. You will see it as you pass by the square. Lots of nice restaurants around it too. I'd suggest sitting in the restaurant facing it directly and to try to get one of the tables with the view of it. Personally I enjoyed the clock at night;less sun, less crowd. And make sure to be there as it strikes the hour.

  • Its genius! A fascinating masterpiece - it's not just clock but a calendar and even more. Highly recommended. I would encourage the visitors to understand its components and think how brilliantly it was designed centuries ago. Situated around the old town square, it's lively throughout the day.

  • It is very busy however you would expect that from such a beautiful artifact. Large square to walk, with restaurants and cafes around the clock. For those who dont like to walk, there are electric lime scooters you can rent for an hour which save your legs but give you the same experience. For those who like to walk, this is a beautiful location to have long strolls on the historical pebble streets whilst enjoying the whether all at once

  • Best place to start your journey in Prague. Very nice place with lot of eateries around. Wait for the hour and be in place 10 mins early else it will get crowded. Big square around the clock to enjoy and spend quality town.
