Its true. Prague is . . . Magical.

For me and for most who have visited this historical fairyland, would probably agree that Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, if not, ‘the’ most beautiful. And I am not exaggerating. Pictures do not do it justice. I remember my tour guide saying that you would need “maybe three lifetimes to see everything that this magical city has to offer.” Only after my trip was over, did I believe her.

They say after visiting Prague, one always comes back.

A must-see installation in the Old Town Square – The Prague astronomical clock or otherwise known as the Prague orloj. Dating back from the Middle Ages and constructed in 1410, this medieval treasure is the world’s oldest astronomical clock still working today. It displays moving statues and visualization of time, Sun and Moon position with the Astronomical Dial as one of its main features, used in medieval astronomy.
