  • Next to the old and new China GOK (located on the South side next to the right). It is a famous Hebrew clock building. Watch and see the Tower on this building from the street in front of the krausensinagork a bit strange that I have.

  • Perhaps it was something in the old days but right now I think you should walk by and say that you saw it. It is not always open to view and if it is and you pay to come in you will be disappointed.  more »
  • Worth a walk around the building for its interesting architecture components and beautiful clocks. Make the tour when you are around with the walk in the Jewish quarter.  more »

  • Ich visited it Nice place
  • Keeping a watchful eye over Josefov is the tower of the Jewish Town Hall with its 2 distinctive clocks. It’s a picturesque site of the Jewish Town Hall, a building that sits on a busy intersection that contains historic synagogues and the Old Jewish Cemetery. One of the clocks on the tower feature Roman numerals that we often see in our standard clocks. The other, Hebrew numerals with anticlockwise movement which is quite an interesting juxtaposition.
  • Absolute must in Prague
  • Be sure to visit this ancient Jewish town hall
  • The town hall was built in the year 1577. Author of the project was made a patron of the arts, Roder Pancras Mordechai Maisel-warden of the Prague Jewish town, rich influential people. The Town Hall built in the Renaissance style. Green Tower, which I mentioned, appeared after the Swedish siege of 1648, the Jews of Prague fought bravely. then for Charles Bridge; privilege to erect this tower was presented to the community by Ferdinand III. A small building surrounded by wrought balconies with headdress like the Swedish Warrior. Spire towers crowned by a Golden Ball and the star of David. A few years after the devastating fire of the year 1754 in Jozefove, architect Joseph Schlesinger rebuilt the façade of the Town Hall in Rococo style. During the reconstruction of the year 1908 was extended South Wing of the building. Today the Town Hall belongs to several social and religious Jewish organizations for their work and meetings. Tourists can visit the kosher restaurant "Kosher Shalom", located on the first floor of City Hall. Hours at the town hall a few. Four traditional clock face with Roman numerals adorn the turret on the roof of a building (this building a story, it will tell later). On the building and there are other watches, unusual-they are by Červená street skating pediment over the north façade. Tourists especially come on Majzlovu Street to see "time flowing tide. The round dial place the usual numbers for letters of the Hebrew alphabet, in order: Aleph, bet, Gimel "... The Hebrew words are read from right to left, arrows also move the other way around. Produced outlandish timepieces master Sebastian Landesberger in year 1765.
