A really amazing clock tower. Try to be there on the hour to see the clock chiming and the characters moving.

Amazing 16th century moving clock, great theatre. The Japanese really love it. Worth buying a coffee and cake in the square to watch the tourists/ local buzz

It's great to just walk around the Town! You can warm yourself up with a yummy hot cherry drink or hot chocolate with cream for 29 cents! You can also treat yourself to a beautiful garnet - I chose something modern, not like the usual old designs and negotiated a price. They resized my ring and I went back an... More

This clock is beautifully created, and every hour it plays it's theatre piece, as lovely as it is outside, you must go up at night, the city looks beautiful all lit up and it's a sight that should not be missed, and you will not be sorry if you do it.

You can't visit Paris the first time and not see the Eiffel Tower, so the same applies here. There's absolutely nothing spectacular or breathtaking about this clock, besides the fact that it is the oldest working clock of its kind in the world. If you're in Prague, you'll inevitably be in this area anyway, so walk to the southwest corner... More

Well, what can I say, the clock itself is pretty smart looking and worth seeing. Obviously a great achievement to build something so complex in the days it was built. The crowds gather and wait for some sort of spectacular event, the actual show is very disappointing.
