Famous clock in the hall. At the end of every hour, you can hear chimes sound and Christ Apostles appear in the upper windows of the clock. The age of the clock exceeding 500 years, it is amazing. Location of the hall good for visitors....More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
