Orloj is not just a medieval clock; it is the oldest working astronomical clock in the world. Commissioned in 1410, Orloj endured periods of disrepair over time due to financial and economical difficulties. With each repair, updates in technology and appearance were added whilst the original design was retained. Prague’s Astronomical Clock is a busy mechanism with three featured parts: The Walk of the Apostle at the top, The Clock Dial beneath it, and The Calendar at the bottom. In addition, mechanical elements, sculptures, and Prague symbolism and imagery are incorporated into the clock's design for educational and entertainment purposes.

  • Gather outside Prague’s Old Town City Hall at the change of the hour to see the performance put on by the apostles who reside within the top of the clock and come out when the clock chimes.
  • Learn the details of the legend and curse of Hanus, who allegedly repaired and enhanced Orloj in 1490 before the city’s governing officials put out his eyes so he could never duplicate it.
  • Visit the Prague City Museum to see original pieces of Orloj that were replaced over the years of repairs but have been preserved for viewing.

To see Orloj, head to Old Town Square, in the oldest part of Prague. Travel by car is not the best way to go about since many streets in the area are narrow, cobblestone, and intended for pedestrians only. Public transportation and walking will prove the best combination of travel methods to get you to various local attractions. The Staromestska and Mustek Stations on the metro Line A will drop you within a few minutes’ walk of Old Town Square and Orloj. Travellers from outside the region will find the Prague International Airport the most convenient to fly into.
