Astronomical Clock

The Astronomical Clock, which is located in the city of Prague, is a medieval astronomical clock that was installed, at first, in 1410, making it the oldest of its kind in the world and the only one that still works today.


The clock is on the Old Town of Prague, in the square with the same name, and the mechanism bases itself in three components, and despite being hundreds of years old, it still works perfectly, although it´s had to be fixed many times throughout time. Actually, in 1945 during an uprising in the city, it caught fire.


The oldest part of the clock is the astronomical dial that dates from before 1410, when the watchmaker Mikuláš de Kadaň and Jan Šindel, a mathematics and astronomy professor from the Charles University created it.


This is not only one of the city´s most important monuments, but also one of mankind´s and it´s the only one of its kind that still works.


For this reason, visiting it is an obligation for all those who are in the place. If you want, you can rent apartments in Prague and enjoy the Astronomical Clock.
