The Astronomical Clock

Every hour on the hour thousands of tourists flock to the Old Town Hall in Prague to see the magnificent old Astronomical Clock. The clock dates back centuries and was painted by Joseph Manes. Every hour as well as the beautiful chimes chickens, 12 marionette apostles dance around the clock which also features the solar system complete with planets, moon and sun and the zodiac. Much of the clock dates back to the 14th and 15th Century but the marionettes and some other features have been replaced due to wear and tear and damage sustained during wartime.
