‘Astronomical’ clock in Brno

Public clock of Brno, Czech Republic

Even though many people call this an astronomical clock, it is just a clock. The clock reminds of an episode of the Thirty Years’ War, when 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.
