Astronomical ClockAstronomical Clock (Orloj)

There are only two astronomical clocks in the country, and the one in Olomouc was remodeled in the style of social-realism popular in the communist era. Some people love it, some hate it and most think it's quirky, but it's worth being there for the mechanical performance (daily at noon) to make up your own mind. The clock is part of the town hall building on Horní náměstí (Upper Square).
