Looks good! I have been there many time, just need to improve my timing as I have never seen how Astronomical Clock works. Be there on time, every hour!

Olomouc has a beautiful and unusual astronomical clock. The figures that surround the clock face in gorgeous mosaics are depictions of workers. When the clock chimes workers with hammers start to move.

Beautiful murals from communist era along with a dial that has names for each of the 365 days make this a unique clock while not as spectacular as the Prague one
