Medieval crane at Prague Castle

Prague Castle has new attraction and it is really huge exhibit. A copy of crane has same proportions as a real medieval crane. It was build by pictures from manuscript of Wenceslas Bible from the end of 14th century, and by research of similar historical devices.

Whole crane was built from hand hacked wood using medieval technologies. The crane is using manpower – two men run in big wheel – like a hamster and thus the crane can do required things.

Unfortunately, creators of replica hadn’t enough money to make additional programme like using the crane by visitors.
The crane will be at Prague Castle at the end of September.
