Travel around the world #7 : Prag / Prague

Our next station to Travel Around the World is Prague.

I'm so much amaze by the Prague Astronomical clock / Prague Orloj.

The Orloj is composed of three components :
i) the astronomical dial, representing the position of the Sun and Moon in the sky ;
ii) a clockwork hourly show of figures of the Apostles and other moving sculptures ;
iii) a calendar dial with medallions representing months.

Closed up details.

The above postcard will be send out to Sabine Wenzel (Germany).
Hope she will like it.
