605TH BIRTHDAY OF THE PRAGUE ASTRONOMICAL CLOCK

ENG: Even though I have only been to Prague once for a high school class trip, its beauty and charm are still with me. Sure, life will take me there in the future, and until then I am daydreaming of the city. This post is to tribute Prague and its well known astronomical clock (aka ORLOJ), which celebrates its 605th birthday today. It was first installed in 1410, making it the third oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still working today (made by clock-maker Mikuláš of Kadaň and Jan Šindel)

HU: Gimis koromban voltam eloszor (egyszer) Pragaban egy kacifantos osztalykirandulas soran, es azota is magamban hordozom a varos szepseget, varazsat. Tudom, hogy az elet meg elvisz ebbe a gyonyoru varosba, addig is ebren abrandozom rola. A mai poszt Pragat es az Orlojt unnepli, ez utobbi ma 605 eves (1410-ben installaltak eloszor, Mikulas Kadan es Jan Sindel keszitettek). Ez a fantasztikus alkotas  a legidosebb mukodo asztronomiai ora az egesz vilagon.
