Story behind the souvenir

Story behind the souvenir

The clock was built in the 15th century by the master clockmaker Mikuláš of Kadaň and the astronomer Jan Šindel. It consists of three main components: the Astronomical Clock, the perpetual calendar, and the “Procession of the Apostles.”

The complexity of the Astronomical Clock is impressive. In its design, it combines elements of astronomy, astrology, mythology, and religion. The Astronomical Clock displays the positions of the sun, moon, stars, and other celestial bodies in the sky. It also shows the local time, medieval Bohemian time, zodiac signs, and religious holidays.

The beauty of the Astronomical Clock lies in its intricate decoration and meticulous craftsmanship. The clock is adorned with sculpted statues, Gothic details, and golden decorative elements. Every hour, the “Procession of the Apostles” sets in motion, and you can observe the statues of the twelve apostles parading through the upper windows.

The cultural significance of Prague’s Astronomical Clock is profound. It represents the knowledge and scientific prowess of the medieval era, and its construction was a remarkable technical achievement. Additionally, it symbolizes the connection between heaven and earth, between the celestial and the earthly. The clock has witnessed centuries of history and has been present for important events in Prague. It is also considered a symbol of Czech identity and pride.
