The astronomical clock in Prague is two stories high and absolutely fantastic. The scale of it is hard to grasp by looking at a photo. Have you been there?
Astronomical clocks are incredible. The mechanisms to operate them as well as the sensational designs.

I love all these photos and clocks. The last one is a view from the inside of a clock – a kitchen of Musee d’Orsay. Isn’t it fabulous?
