"Prague Castle - Powder Tower" Powder Gate Tip by Ewingjr98
Powder Gate, Prague: 65 reviews and 108 photos
The Powder Tower -- or Mihulka -- is one of the few remaining towers that once lined the castle walls. It was built in the 15th Century and sits very close to St. Vitus's Cathedral. Over the years it has housed a metal foundry, an alchemist's lab, a gunpowder storage area, and it served as the dwelling for those who maintained the ceremonial equipment at St. Vitus's.
During my visit in January 2006, the Powder Tower was home to one of the world's largest toy soldier collections. I don't know if this is a permanent exhibition or if this display occasionally changes. Entrance is 50 CZK.
Do not confuse the castle's Powder Tower with the Powder Tower in the Old Town.
Address: Prazsky hrad
