Great to see an amazing piece of history. Lovely cafe right beside the clock, you can sit and have a beer/coffee and wait for the hour to strike to see this lovely piece of hstory work its magic.

The architechture is amazing and so is the atmosphere. The clock itself is a little disappointing but still worth the wait

Definitely worth checking out. Get there for the top of the hour chime is recommended. Near the city center.

Try to visit at night as it is more beautiful with the lights. Very crowded place and be careful of pickpockets.

It was a lovely experience watching so many people from various country's gather in the Town Center waiting for the clock to chime and the little children so excited added to the experience. Just fantastic.

Clock was installed in 1400's. Keeps very accurate time and does a "show" on the hour. Entails, 'death' figure ringing a chime. Other figures react. Parade of twelve apostle figures across the top. Cock crows. Chimes ring the hour. Also shows blend of astronomical signs....More

One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is

How much is it to enter the tower with the family of 4. What time do you suggest is best to be in the tower and see the hourly show. We are there from 1/7 to 5/7.

Sorry don't know the answer to your question we were expecting a lot so maybe due to the work that is going on it is not full working.
