Prague’s Astronomical Clock
 
One of the popular tourist attractions in Prague, the capital of Czechia (formerly known as the Czech Republic}, is this astronomical clock located at the Old Town Square. Created by Mikuláš of Kadan and Jan Šindel, it dates back in the 1400s. Amazingly, it still works.
