The astronomical clock is also an epitome of good luck,success and fortune for the people residing there.It is believed that it would be the end of the world if anything awkward happens to the clock.The clock was made by a professor in Mathematics and it’s importance and mention came in the year 1410.The blue circle represents our mother Earth and the red and black portions represents the view of the empyrean.Inside the black portion are areas of the zodiac ring that represents the Sun and the golden star shows the position of the equinox.The city life is awesome and wonderful and the people very hospitable and kind. Prayers and offerings often takes place in cathedrals and churches for the well being of the people of the city.I consider myself very fortunate to have sighted this historical clock which I have never seen anywhere and Prague remains a profound place in my memory and heart to cherish for entire life.
