the old and new

             .

                 The Old Town Square dates back to the 1oth century.   Yep, its pretty old.  But I think that’s what makes it

                  even more beautiful.  How it survived all these years is pretty amazing…

The place was literally crawling with tourists, all waiting for the clock to chime.

I was pretty tired from walking, but still trying to smile even if it was hot & drizzling at the same time 🙂

Astronomical Clock

.

            Every hour the wooden figures of the Twelve Apostles appear from the window above the clock. Beside the

            clock are four figures which represents Vanity (a man with a mirror), Greed (a miser holding a bag of gold),

            Death (a skeleton with an hourglass), Pleasure (a Turk showing pleasure and entertainment). Beside the

            calendar dial (below the clock) are another four figures: an Astronomer, a Chronicler, a Philosopher, an Angel.

The Old Town meets the Newly Weds   🙂

The newly weds are waiting for their photo shoot.

Too bad it rained pretty hard that time. But they still looked adorable.  😉
