Powder Gate, Prague: 65 reviews and 108 photos


Neo-Gothic Powder Tower marks the entrance to the Old Town. From here, Celetna Street leads right to the Old Town Square. This is also where the traditional procession route of Czech kings started. The tower is called 'Powder', because it was used as a storehouse for gunpowder in the 17th century.
