The Astronomical clock is one of the most popular and recognized sites in Prague and can be found in the Old Square of the Czech capital.

Every hour on the hour the marionettes on the clock ‘perform’ for the people watching below including the bell-ringing skeleton (representing Death – holding a beer funnily enough).

If you love this you’ll also probably love the Glockenspiel in Munich, Germany – it’s tacky and touristy but you have to see it.
