‘Astronomical’ clock in Brno

Tagged , ,

Public clock of Brno, Czech Republic

Even though many people call this an astronomical clock, it is just a clock. The clock refers to an episode of the Thirty Years’ War when the people of Brno ended a siege by pretending a wrong time of day.

Every day at 11:00 am, a marble emerges from one of four openings and can be caught by a lucky spectator.
