Old Town Hall Tower, Prague, Czech Republic 

The Old Town Hall Tower (shown below) built in 1338, is one of the most striking buildings in Prague. Inside is a staircase and an elevator. For a fee, visitors can climb or ride to the top to experience terrific views over the Old Town Square and the rest of the Old Town.

On the east-facing wall of the tower is the Astronomical Clock, dating from the 15th century. Every hour, on the hour, a small trap door opens and Christ marches out ahead of his disciples, while the skeleton of death tolls the bell.

To get to the top of the tower you can either take the circular elevator (shaft shown), or climb the stairs. Frankly it's a real easy climb, plus the small elevator is a bit claustrophobic.

Looking down from the Old Town Hall Tower near the top of any hour and hundreds of people can be seen waiting for the Astronomical Clock to strike; it's quite a show.
