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.

It's a really old and beautiful clock. As the clock strikes there are moving parts. Free attraction. Expected nothing more and got nothing more.

The Old town hall and Astronomical clock is a very quaint attraction and if you are in the area on the hour mark, it is worth hanging about to see.

If you can get a spot amongst the crowds then a visit to see the clock chime on the hour every hour is a must. Unfortunately the tower was closed for renovation so we couldn't venture to the top but that's a good excuse for...More

If you simply go and stand there as the hour strikes, you may be disappointed by the activity of the characters. But learn about how the clock works and what it tells and you will have to be impressed.

The clock is really cool and certainly worth checking out. The crowds can be over-the-top with everyone trying to get in a good position to film on the hour. I would recommend forgetting about your phone/camera, get off to the side somewhere where you can...More

The hourly show at the medieval astronomical clock is usually very crowded, a marvel of early 15th century technology. The clock is very fanciful.

Very nice worth the stop and make sure to go when it is on the hour to see it moving!!! During the Christmas season it is very crowed but you can still get up close and watch it work.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful

of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
