Reconstruction of the historical Old Town Hall in the centre of Prague gets underway on Thursday. The Old Town Clock Tower, which attracts over 700,000 visitors a year, will be closed to the public as of the start of May. The reconstruction of the historical Astronomical Clock, one of Prague’s major tourist attractions, will follow in 2018. The clock will be out of order for several months. In the meantime, a projection of the clock will be offered on the covered scaffolding. The renovation works are expected to cost some 46 million crowns.
