Prague: Astronomical Clock Tower

This astronomical clock is the oldest of its kind still operational. It was installed in 1410 and is still running today. Each hour, the clock chimes the time and puts on a little show where the 12 apostles peak out the two windows at the top. A massive crowd gathers every hour to see it. I have a video of the event, but can't see to get it to load through the blog. So, enjoy the photos instead.

Next we went to the top of the tower to get a great view of Prague.
