  • Best in the Sommer when one can sit on a terrace in the main square with a nice bewerage and watch the clock work at noon.
  • Second orloj in czech republic. Its impression is very controversive, as it is designed in socialist realism from comunist era. Interesting is that on its calendar you can find birthday of communist personalities like Stalin or Gottwald.
  • Good place. Historical and located in the center. Easy to find.
  • Interesting. Restored during the communist era. Not as impressive as the one in Prague. Only plays the full routine at noon. The hourly displays are a little underwhelming. Good communist themed mosaics.
  • The Holy Trinity Column is a must see. Take a little trip from Prague or (Praha) as the locals say, to Olomouc. Trust me you will never want to leave. Sit down and have yourself a beer.
