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.

Construction of the clock took three years, at a cost of approximately 12 million CZK.To visit Brno astronomical clock on your holiday in Brno, and find out what else Brno has to offer, use our Brno.
