L’viv, Ukraine – Town Hall clock tower ringing bells @ 1200

These are the gears, weights and cables that run the clock. 408 steps to the top, 213 feet. Many years ago, the Monks ran the tower. One day the watchman saw that the city was going to be attacked and there was not enough time to warn the gate guard, so he advanced the clock five minutes so that the bells would sound sooner, thereby the guards closed the city gates sooner.
