Description

The 15th-century astronomical clock is housed on the south side of the Gothic Old Town Hall in Prague. Gilded and complex in style, the Czech master clockmaker Mikul of Kadah made the clock in 1410. The upper face displays the time and day of the week, while the lower one shows signs of the zodiac that are delicately decorated.
