    Quite fascinating. Do read about the clock before you visit to appreciate the history and technology related to the clock. The oldest working astronomical clock. A sea of tourists always clicking it.

    You need to really understand the history behind the clock it's really tricky, but amazing. Make sure you pass by at any o'clock hour, don't miss the show

    Prazsky Orloj is the highlight of The Old Town Square. You'll surely stop to view the entire world's oldest medieval astronomical clock and the brilliant show of moving parts and figures it displays

    Restaurants around this clock are usually very expensive, but if you go further, you will find very good cafes with tasty home food 👌🏽

    Type in "Klaster sv. Anezky Ceske" and go. In 15 minutes, you'll be enjoying National Gallery's early Medieval art collections in serene gothic surroundings without any crowds. Eat at Lokal nearby.

    Be sure to check out the 12 apostles coming out from the clock once every hour.. And visit a grand cafe prague in front of it.. It serves great food and drinks while you wait for the clock

    Every hour on the hour it's nice to watch the clock do something different, but be prepared that if you go in the peak hours of the day it's a tourist fest!

    The medieval astronomical clock adorns the southern wall of the Old Town City Hall in the Old Town Square and is a very popular tourist attraction.

    The clock is beautiful and very intricately designed, though I wouldn't make a special trip to watch it but make sure you do if you're in the area on the hour.

    Best viewing of the chime/performance is the first one of the day at 9am...unless you really like standing in a sea of human tourists.

    More amazing to see in person. Note that the movement of the clock is short and happens at the top of the hour. Blink and you will miss the "action".

    This place is amazing and so is its history. It'll be hard to take a good picture, you better bring a fish eye or something.

    You may not like the trumpet show which appears hourly, but you should certainly go up the tower and have a great city view.

    For over 500 years, the people of Prague have been using this clock’s extraordinary and complicated astronomical dial to accurately pinpoint when happy hour begins.

    This square is packed with beautiful sculptures, statues and architecture, but notice signs reading "watch your property" for shortly after you hear coka, x, hashish, your pockets might be a bit light

    They say the clockmaker killed himself jumping in the gearing of the clock to get revenge from the fact that they blinded him so that he wouldn't build other clocks as beautiful as this.

    Kafka used to live nearby and have this beautiful timepiece bonging in his ear every hour. Must have entered his writing somehow.

    The moving display is one of the most underwhelming tourist sites in Europe, but the device itself is pretty cool.

    Lovely view. Worth the price. Go up by the elevator and get down with the stairs. You'll enjoy it.

    Warning: don't come here with great expectations. The history of this clock is more interesting than the actual clock strike.
