Hurry up to visit Old Town Hall, before it is closed for renovation!

Next year the large-scale reconstruction of one of the famous attractions in the whole Czech Republic is planned – Old Town Hall and the Astronomical Clock. Tourists will not be able to enjoy picturesque views of Prague from the Old Town tower because it will be closed for visitors and residents of the capital within 7 months. The total approximate time of all renovation is up to 2 years.

“Despite the fact that the observation deck is closed, we are planning the interesting program to compensate the inability to visit certain sites”,- says Kateřina Bartova, a spokesperson from Prague City Tourism.

Restorers are planning to reconstruct absolutely all elements of historical clocks, hit by a strong fire in 1945. For example, the Orloj will have a new roof in the sky-blue color and the calendar, which – according to many experts – is not a very good copy of the original.
