In front of the web camera is located famous astronomical clock, which was installed in the town hall in 1410. The clock, called the Prague Orloj are functioning properly to this day (although in their long history there were also several stops), so any tourist usually loves to consider the position of the Moon, the Sun, the North Star, and the individual constellations at the moment. Unfortunately, the quality of the video web camera does not allow to consider the fine details at the Town Hall and the famous clock. especially in low light and overcast conditions. Somewhat better is the case in a bright sunny day, but even then the detalisation is poor.

Therefore, before the start of each new hour in front of the clock is going to a big crowd to see and film the mini-view, in which small windows above the hours open, and there appear moving Apostles figures and as a symbol of death – the skeleton – rings a bell and raises hourglass.
