Brno astronomical clock (Czech: Brněnský orloj) is a black stone monument in Brno, Czech Republic. It is situated at Náměstí Svobody, the main square in the Brno City Centre. The monument was proposed by Oldřich Rujbr and Petr Kameník. Every day at 11:00 it releases a glass marble, which the spectators can catch from one of four openings in the monument and they can take it with them as a souvenir. Although the monument is publicly known as an astronomical clock (orloj), it is only a clock. Construction of the clock took three years, at a cost of approximately 12 million CZK.

  • You would never guess it was a clock. But very unique. Always attracts lots of visitor's. In the perfect location near bars, restaurants and FANTASTIC shops. A must visit. 😁
  • Lots of great places around to enjoy a drink or a meal. As for the clock is kind of cool to see it. How people will set it in 100 years. That will be another question
