The Astronomical Clock in Prague, known locally as the “Pražský orloj,” is one of the most famous and visually stunning astronomical clocks in the world. It is also the oldest functioning astronomical clock in the world. Located in the Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí) in Prague, Czech Republic, it is a remarkable piece of medieval engineering and artistry.

The rich history of this gorgeous clock dates back to the 15th century, when it was installed in the Old Town Hall in 1410.
