  • Nothing worse in Brno. Although I am educated, I understood the principle of this work. Does not show up, or clock, the ball I also hear the fall (let alone to see her).

  • This clock is highly unusual, and apparently keeps good time. We asked a waiter in one of the pavement cafes how it worked, he said no one knew, even the guy who invented it had forgotten!  more »

  • There quite a few funny stories about this clock. If you want to tell the time it is quicker to have a look at the church which is a bit behind the square. The guy who designed it had also problems with explaining how to tell the time. I think each day at 11 a glass marble falls down to remember a historical moment.
  • It looks like a falic symbol and there is no way to found out on it what time is it😀 so basicly a big political tunel. But at least it is funny. Every year on silvester they put a giant kondom on it😂
  • In our conservative little Czech world, we desperately need objects like this to spark controversy and activate discussion. A waste of money? No, actually a great investment. I haven't seen any other piece of art attract as much attention to a city. Honestly, the square has some nice architecture, but it would be quite average without the clock. With the clock, it is provocative. A big win in my opinion.
  • I think it's more funny than pretty and everyone in Brno has different opinion about it. However you cannot miss it on your trip through city centre so make your own opinion. :)
  • It's a clock? No wonder that the good people of Brno are always late...
