Astronomical Clock and Jewish Quarter

Today, I would like to draw your attention to one really engagingly written review about the most famous highlights of any Prague visit. The one deals with the famous Astronomical Clock to be found in the Old Town Square:

... Interestingly this clock, dating back to 1410, does not tell time. Instead it shows the days, seasons, phases of the moon, equinoxes and Christian holidays. To find the time, look at the very top of the 230-foot tower. If you go all the way up there, you’ll also find great views of the city. What’s special about the clock is that a 30-second, politically incorrect medieval morality play begins there every hour…

The second part of the review focuses on another famous part of Prague – the Jewish Quarter:

... The Jewish Quarter, just a short walk from Old Town Hall, contains the remains of Praha’s former Jewish ghetto. There are many synagogue and attractions here. It’s a beautiful area, but depressing when you hear all the tragedy…
