The most incredible Astronomical Clock you´ve ever seen

The Astronomical Clock of Prague is known as Orloj. It´s not only beautiful to look at, but it´s also one of the oldest and most detailed works of this kind ever manufactured in the world. In addition to showing the time, it indicates the moon phases and the movement of the stars. The clock comes alive every hour from 8 am to 20h with the mechanical movement of the procession of the Twelve Apostles and other statuettes that move on the outside of the clock.
