OLD TOWN HALL (Staroměstská Radnice) This building is the centerpiece of Old Town Square and you will always find a mass of tourists clustered at the base of the tower.  Old Town Hall was marked from an existing series of row houses in 1338 by the city council.  The tower houses Prague's famous Astronomical Clock (Orloj), a beautiful and ornate giant clock built in 1410.  Each hour a skeleton representing Death rings a bell and inverts his hourglass while a row of apostles parade by and nod to the crowd.

Open Tuesday-Sunday 9am-6pm, Monday 11am-6pm, April-October; Tuesday-Sunday 9am-5pm, Monday 11am-5pm, November-March.
