The Prague Astronomical Clock, believed to have been constructed in 1410 by famed clockmaker Mikulas of Kudan, has long been a source of eerie legend and morbid speculation, including talk of a centuries old curse. The clock's eeriness comes not so much from its appearance, which is stunning, but from the mystery which still shrouds its origins. Add to that the fact that Prague itself is such an old and fascinating city, and that the figure of Death tolls the bell, and you have a clock whose eeriness reaches astronomic proportions.
