The world’s youngest astronomical clock towers above the central square in a small Slovakian village. Its colorful astrolabe is the star feature of a building that seems to flow as fluidly as time itself.
The clock was built in 2009 during renovations on the town square. It’s the only horologe of its kind in Slovakia. Because its satellite-controlled software allows it to display true solar time, it’s also said to be the most accurate astronomical clock in the world.
