Oldest operating astronomical clock in the world

Prague Astronomical Clock

#VisitCZ @VisitCZ

First installed in 1410, the clock has had features added over the centuries, and there was a time it wasn’t operating (1945 until 1948–thanks Nazis). The last renovation took place after I took this photo in 2017. The renovations on the Old Town Tower (and clock) were completed a few months ago. There is a chance I’ll get to see it again in summer of 2019.

Here’s a video of the super cool show that happened at the 600th anniversary in 2010. Don’t get bored by the first 10 or 20 seconds as it gets better and better…

Should I go to Prague again in 2019? If so, what’s the best day trip (other than awesome Kutná Hora, which I’ve already done)?

A couple summers ago, while wandering the streets of Prague, I noticed a poster advertising the Prague Burlesque Show at the nearly 100 year old Royal Theatre. The show happens every Friday night. I had never seen a burlesque show, but it was Friday, and I wanted to check out the theatre. Tickets were cheap (under $20), and the theatre exceeded my expectations. It was like entering a time machine and coming out in the 1930s. The bar was incredible–super classy and inexpensive. The show wasn’t bad either.
