The Gothic Town Hall dates from the 14th century. Its tower forms the north-west corner of the Council-house dating from 1443. The horologe on the Town Hall is alleged... More

I loved the astronimical clock; under the communist regime, the saints where replaced with proletariat workers. Every hour workers of various types come out to chime the hour - try watch them strike midday
