The square surrounding Prague Astronomical Clock is one of the most crowded spots in all of Prague, attracting tourists eager to synchronize their watches with one of the world's oldest timepieces. The town hall, founded here in the 1330s, houses the old town's main tourist office and has art exhibits on its first two floors. You can take a guided tour of the building to see its council chamber and assembly room, noted for containing exquisite mosaics from the 1930s. Be sure to climb the building's Gothic tower to see the inner workings of the famous astronomical clock, considered one of medieval Europe's major technical achievements. The clock's decorative figures put on a lively show on the hour, so time your visit if possible. You can plan Prague trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • A great meeting place, as it is so easy to find. At the turn of the hour there is a crowd here to enjoy the mechanical show.

  • A place with so much history and mystery... obligatory stop in this city
  • The guide was an amazing storyteller! Thank you for a cool experience. I am amazed at how tasteful the interiors were decorated. I think they won a design award for the tower, with the iron stairs and the elevator. Everything was geared towards classy experience design But the main thing was the amazing guide. Great storytelling skills and loads of patience towards everyone's questions.
