No doubt about it the astronomical clock is one of an already pretty city's prettiest attractions, but when I was there seeing it strike 5pm last Thursday (16th of January) all that happened was a few figurines exited the little doors above the horloge itself and did a little dance. Was I expecting more? Yes maybe for the hour many finish work. I also felt like I may get pick pocketed at any moment (fortunately this wasn't the case)

I might go back again to see it strike a different hour, maybe early in the morning.

Located in the center of the square, this clock attracts large crowds on the hour, to watch it when it strikes. It is a wonderful part of history and one must see this-you really cant miss it!

Set in the old town square a heavy tourist area. Even in a cold January there plenty of people here especially to watch the hourly spectacle - ahem. Don't expect a laser show or anything remotely hi-tec. This is 600+ years old. But discover for yourself. When the clock is about to strike there are peddlars mingling with the crowd trying to sell absolute crap.
Hold on to your valuables, especially if you get jostled or someone standing too close.
Read about it before you go

Highly recommend the old town and the square. Felt completely safe, even at night. Lots to do and see and the buildings and streets are well maintained and clean. Their public transport system is excellent. We had lovely weekend.

The first time we entered this square was breathtaking. The clock is cool, but the square is amazing with all the architecture and history. We were there for the Christmas markets in December and the mood was very festive and crowded but very cool. I would recommend this area very highly. This is must-see Prague at its best.
