Prague Astronomical Clock
This clock in the Old Town Square is over 600 years old, making it the oldest astronomical clock operating in the world and the crown jewel of the city. Every hour, moving figures of the Apostles and other sculptures come to life to perform a show for spectators in the square. Local legend says that Prague will suffer if the clock is neglected, showing how revered this mystical clock is.
The Lennon Wall
The Lennon Wall has been covered in layers upon layers of graffiti since the 1980s when it was a source of irritation for the communist government. The theme is John Lennon, and the lyrics of the Beatles. The wall has also been the starting point for numerous student protests, and has become a symbol in counterculture movements.
