About
The Old Town Hall is one of the most significant monuments in the Czech Republic. It was established in 1338 as the administrative seat for Prague's Old Town. Now, it is mainly used for the ceremonial purposes of the capital city, Prague. The historical town hall consists of a set of five medieval houses, the corner of which is adorned with a historical astronomical clock, a gothic oriel window and a massive rectangular tower. The lookout gallery on the town hall tower offers the most beautiful view of Prague. A tour of the historical halls in the Old Town Hall is a unique experience. The expensively decorated rooms date from various periods and are examples of the remarkable development of the town hall complex. The guided tours in various languages are organised in hourly intervals.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

Worth a visit inside the town hall. You can see the back of the clock and all the figures close up. The view from the top of the tower is spectacular, we were blessed with good weather so the view was clear.

It's certainly a lovely old tower and the engineering of the clock is remarkable. But the very brief hourly pageant of the apostles in the tower was very disappointing compared to similar clocks elsewhere, especially Munich - and even Nottingham's Emmett clock, or Tim Hunkin's quirky clocks - are much more fun.
Good job it's free.

A beautiful tower and astronomical clock established in 1410, a very popular tourist attraction due to the hourly procession of the twelve apostles along with other movements.
Get there early if you want an clear view.

The Old Town Hall which opened in 1338 is one of the most photographed structures in Prague,one ,because it's a beautiful Gothic tower and two,the intriguing Astronomical Clock attached to the building which is a very big tourist attraction .
Every hour the clock springs into life,the Apostles move and the crowds take lots of photos of this event ,me personally love the look of the tower ,it adds to the joy of walking around Old Town Square ( Staromestske Namesti ) ,if you're planning a trip to Prague it's a tower and clock building I highly recommend you check out .

A crowd gathers every hour on the hour, to see the Apostles march through when the clock strikes at the top of the hour. To see it once is enough.

Whimsical, and amazing, when you think of the when it was built. The clock striking the hour sets off a little animated show with figurines. A little simplified for modern minds, but fun to see. The architecture is lovely, and the location on Old Town square is fun, especially with all the street vendors selling trinkets and fun food.

I guess not too many people have visited the astronomical clock and seen it jam half way through its motion. Fortunately it was working again the next day :) It helps to have a guide tell you all the different things that it is showing you. Quite amazing.

If you happen to be passing near the ‘hour’ when it chimes then stand and watch the ‘show’ for 2 minutes but otherwise not worth the time! Also please don’t stand in the middle of the road/pavement - other people need to walk through!
