Prague astronomical clock is a medieval astronomical clock, which is installed on the south wall of the old city hall of Prague Old City Square. The core part of the clock, completed in 1410, consists of three main parts - the astronomical dial, the twelve disciples and the calendar dial. At the hour between 9:00 and 21:00 a.m. each day, twelve statues of the disciples of Jesus appear in turn by the clock, six turning left and six turning right. The God of death on one side begins to ring the bell, and the chicken on the other side will flap its wings and crow. This dynamic time report is the key landscape of Prague travel in the minds of tourists. There are also statues of four people on both sides of the astronomical clock. When making clocks, people use them to represent four kinds of people. A statue is called "conceit" which shows the admiration of one's self in the mirror; a Jew with a gold bag, which shows the usurer of "greed"; a skeleton standing on the other side of the clock, beating the newspaper at every right hour; and finally "Turkish pagan" who wears a long turban. Every time before the whole time, the square was full of waiting tourists. We watched the two time calls at 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., which was very interesting. If you climb the Bell Tower, you can overlook the old city of Prague.

Prague astronomical clock, also known as Prague astrological clock, is a medieval astronomical clock in Prague, Czech capital. The clock was designed according to the Earth Center theory. The clock on the top circled once a year, and the clock on the bottom circled once a day. At 12 noon every day, twelve Jesus disciples appeared by the clock, six turning left and six turning right. With the cock's crowing, the window closed and the clock rang. It is said that after the craftsman finished his work, in order to prevent him from being blinded by another stabbing, now everyone is waiting for twelve o'clock.
The astronomical clock on the tower of the old city hall in the old city of Prague, which embodies the ancient luxury and refinement of European style, is considered to be the most beautiful species in the world. Its maker also lost his eyes because of this beauty, and the craftsmanship of ingenuity, elaboration and beauty was lost. Astronomical clocks are divided into two layers. There are exquisite patterns on the surface and on the pointer. Each pattern has a symbolic purpose. Whether it's cloudy or sunny, it's on time every day. Each of the two small doors on time opened, and the twelve disciples appeared in turn. Without the help of equipment, the people downstairs could not see clearly. But when it comes to newspapers, there are still crowds downstairs. Buy a 130 yuan ticket in the building next to the tower to climb it. Take the elevator to the third floor, along the spiral escalator, see the historical picture of the astronomical clock hanging along the way to the viewing platform, you can get a full view of the old Plaza in Prague.
It has become not only a popular tourist attraction, but also the best place for local people to take wedding photos. It is especially worthwhile to see the 12 disciples appearing in turn with the bell at the hour of the hour. It is precisely because of this that when the hour comes, many people gather here to watch, look forward to it, the bell sounds clear and pleasant, the disciples are relatively small, and at high altitudes, they rotate very fast and can't see clearly. If only they had a telescope.
When we went, we were decorating, not going up, but the appearance was already amazing. The feeling of watching animation in the animation city, we must wait for the whole time to report, look at the 12 little people in the window, think that the ingenuity inside is really complicated, it is worth going to.
