An old clock is always good value. But it´s just a bit to hyped, and we are not the right people to enjoy street jugglers and jazz bands playing for all to hear whether they want to or not.

Lots of historic buildings in the surrounding area. Astronomical Clock - worth going to the tower as the view from the top of the clock is breath-taking.

The Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock is located in the middle old town in the city Prague, next to "The Old Town Square" it's pity now they are renovating the building, Don't see anything special!!

Join the crowds of onlookers as the Astronomical Clock nears the hour when the 12 apostles magically appear as the clock sounds each hour. Even after so many centuries, this clock remains one of the most visited sites in Prague

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

How much is it to enter the tower with the family of 4. What time do you suggest is best to be in the tower and see the hourly show. We are there from 1/7 to 5/7.

Sorry couldn't tell you as whenever we passed they were working. Although they had just started wiring on the tower so that may be the reason why. Sorry I couldn't help you
