Kaprova Street, originally named Svatovalentinská Street, is one of the oldest streets in Prague and used to be connected to the Old Town Square. The street acquired its present name from the mayor of the Old Town, Pavel Kapr from Kaprštejna, in the second half of the 16th century. The Kaprova apartment is only a few steps away from one of Prague's most famous attractions, The Astronomical Clock, located in the Old Town Square. This unique astronomical clock was built in 1410 by a watchmaker called Mikoláš of Kadan and an astronomer called Jan Ondreju. In the late 15th century the clock was perfected by Mistr Hanus z Ruze. At that time, the Prague councilors were very proud of their original landmark and feared that Mistr Hanus would build the same clock in a different city, therefore they ordered Hanus to be blinded. When Hanus learned who did this to him, he had his assistant bring him to the City Hall, where he, pulled the lever and damaged the machine forever. Allegedly it took ages before they found someone who could repair it. Meanwhile the silence of the clock reminded the councilors of their horrible deed. An interesting fact about the clock is that the only part which has nothing to do with time are the apostles, they are there for religious reasons.
