“Amazing design”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

This clock was minutes away from the Ventana Hotel. An amazing design. We waiting for the clock to strike on the hour, but not a lot happened, its still fascinating to watch though.

“Amazing views from the clock tower”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Beautiful building, good climb up to the top but lift available for the less energetic and what a view all over the city - amazing at night, puts the city into perspective when seen from that height.

“A must see - Old Town Hall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

As you will see, obviously a key sight is the hourly viewing of the Astronomical Clock. I definitely would recommend going up the Tower to the observation deck for a fabulous view of Prague - a must.

“Nice views of Old Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

The clock itself is a very interesting thing. When you go up in the tower, you then have great views of Old Town Square, as well as the Prague Castle. It was pricier than expected, but worth the nice shots.
