The Prague Astronomical Clock or Prague Orloj is a medieval astronomical clock located in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. The clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third oldest astronomical clock in the world and the only one still working.
Across the clock stands Death, a skeleton that strikes the time upon the hour. Finally, the Turk tells pleasure and entertainment.
There is also a presentation of statues of the Apostles at the doorways above the clock, with all twelve presented every hour.
The Calendar is the bottom part of the Orloj with month symbols painted by Josef Manes in 1805. The newest part of the clock is the Calendar Dial. There is the Prague Old Town symbol in the centre. The rotary outer circle describes every single day of the year, and the current date is indicated at the top. There are also medallions with zodiac signs and with pictures depicting every month.
Remember the feeling when you were 7 years old & watching the fireworks at the Disneyland? be prepare to have your mind blown away! Here is the video of this magical presentation!
We hope you enjoyed this amazing video! I can't wait to visit Prague to see this clock in person!
Until next time, be well & look fabulous!
