This is the famous (and really touristy) Astronomical Clock (Orloj) in Old Town Square. It's been there since in 1400's. Posted by Picasa

This is inside the National Museum in Prague right on Welceslas Square. If it looks familar to you (and you haven't been there), it's probably because it's been featured in movies like Mission: Impossible, and Chasing Liberty.

Prague is the capital, and largest city, of the Czech Republic. Often called the "City of a Hundred Spires," it is situated on the Vltava river in central Bohemia, and is home to about 1.2 million people.
