Old Town Prague Astronomical Clock

One of the things I am looking forward to the most is seeing the Old Town Astronomical Clock. This clock is a true work of art, from its designs, coloring, mechanisms all the way down to the 12 Apostles nestled inside the tower making their appearance on the hour.

It has been said that in 1490, a master clockmaker was commissioned to rebuild the famous clock and was blinded by councillors so that he would not be able to rebuild the same style or type of clock anywhere else….It seems to me that would make rebuilding the clock a bit more difficult than necessary, adding a flare of the dramatic. But never the less it makes for a great story!
