Prague's Astronomical Clock is the world's
oldest working clock and the third oldest
clock ever. Installed in 1410, it is located in the
middle of Old Town City Hall in Prague's Old
Town Square. The medieval clock features
an astronomical dial and "The Walk of the
Apostles", meaning every hour the clock will
move each of the sculptures; and a monthly
calendar dial with the 12 signs of the zodiac
representing each month. Crowds will gather
around this clock each hour to see the
Apostles move.

    • 1/2 The full story is wild too, at the time of its creation, only one person in the world could make a clock like that, and the King didn’t want there to be any other like it in the world, so he blinded the clockmaker. To get back at him, the clockmaker took a kid up into the tower one night and
