What can you do in Prague within a short weekend?
🌸You can see the Old Town Square and the performance on the Prague Astronomical Clock, the Orloj. A medieval tower clock, installed on the Town Hall, is run every hour from 8 am to 8 pm. The upper windows on the both sides of the stone angel are opened, and wooden painted figures of 12 apostles appear in pairs one by one. During the apostles’ procession, the dial also starts to move. The figure of Death nods its head, tolls a bell with one bony hand and turns over an hourglass with the other. Vanity turns its head and looks in the mirror from different sides, and Avarice shakes a bag of money. The show ends with a rooster crowing, and after that the cymbals beat off the next hour.
🌸You can take a stroll on the Charles Bridge,
dine on the terrace, looking at flowing waters of the Vltava.
