Owner description: The Old Town Hall is one of the most significant monuments in the Czech Republic. It was established in 1338 as the administrative seat for Prague's Old Town. Now, it is mainly used for the ceremonial purposes of the capital city, Prague. The historical town hall consists of a set of five medieval houses, the corner of which is adorned with a historical astronomical clock, a gothic oriel window and a massive rectangular tower. The lookout gallery on the town hall tower offers the most beautiful view of Prague. A tour of the historical halls in the Old Town Hall is a unique experience. The expensively decorated rooms date from various periods and are examples of the remarkable development of the town hall complex. The guided tours in various languages are organised in hourly intervals.

We looked forward to seeing this but it has scaffolding round as work was being carried out. There was however a film shown on the side at midday so we did see how it would work.

Another place we have visited with my best friend from HK, Nancy, was the historical apostolic clock (Orloj) in the nicest square over the world The Old Town Square. This clock - machine is amazing, as visible from my video and detailed photos of Apostols.

Looked forward to seeing this, got there to find its undergoing a major renovation and therefore exterior clad with hoarding and scaffold, but everything needs maintenance so understandable. But the crowds of visitors is ridiculous even in March, doesn’t stop most of them still taking photos of a building site though?

We visited the clock whilst on a short city break to the city, we were unlucky that the clock was having some work done so we were unable to see it. However we will return in the future. Prague is absolutely beautiful and I totally recommend seeing this gorgeous place.

Very cool and nice. From modern point of view, clock might be boring, but then you realise how old it is. Great worksmanship.
