Photo Hunt - Time

This is an old photo, and a clock is maybe a bit obvious for the theme of 'time', but this is no ordinary clock. It's the Astronomical Clock in the Old Town Square in Prague. The top half shows various astronomical positions and each hour the figures to the sides move and 12 saints appear in the windows at the top. It's a must see if you're visiting Prague.

  1. There were dozens of these in a museum in Vienna - but only maybe one was this big. Amazing time machines!

    I played too.
