The area
Neighborhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
How to get there
  • Republic square • 5 min walk
  • bridge • 7 min walk

Monumental tower
Sep 2021
The construction of this Gothic tower began in 1475. It has served as a gunpowder store.

Also during the coronation procession of Czech kings, they entered the Old Town through this.

The Powder Tower or Powder Gate is one of the original 13 city gates that separates the Old Town from the New Town.

Paying the entrance fee of 150 CZK (6 euros) you can climb the stairs to the viewing gallery that is located at a height of 44 meters.

Beautiful tower
Aug 2021
An old tower with beautiful architecture (there is another tower with similar architecture in Prague, the Old Town Bridge Tower). The gate at its base was one of the entry points to the medieval city. The facade is very beautifully decorated. The ascent to the observation platform is quite difficult, on some narrow spiral stairs. But the view makes it worth the effort. The entrance ticket can be paid with the card. When you climb to the observation deck, at an intermediate level, is a small exhibition that gives you details about the history of the tower.
The stone from which it is built has acquired an almost black color over the time, giving the impression that the tower is smoked by a fire.
Right next to it is Obecní dům / Municipal House, a very beautiful building.

Hard to miss
Oct 2019
I must have walked by thousands of times in the years past.
Some things never change. It was always a good meeting place, everybody knew how to get there.

With the large influx of tourists, they opened it up to the public . For an entrance fee you can climb the steps to the top.

I must admit I have never climbed the steps here , other towers yes, but not here. Actually I did not even know it was possible.

Climb or not , It is quite a landmark , impossible to miss ...

The Powder Gate
Aug 2020
The Powder Gate is located in Republic Square, right next to the Municipal House. The entrance to the tower is small, easy to overlook. The ascent is quite challenging, because the stairs are narrow and spiral, but the view from the top of the tower of Prague is beautiful.

Inside there is a small exhibition that describes the history of this tower.
Various inscriptions from tourists are engraved in the stones on the observation deck. The oldest message I found there was from 1927.

Nice Area
Aug 2019
A monumental gated tower which in the 17th century was used to store gun powder. It has an imposing presence, and one can walk through this and other gates to the old city area which is nice. Also available in the same area are old open air vintage car city tours (good thing to do to get an overview of the city), and need to bargain with them and not pay the excessive price they initially ask for.

Beautiful view
Sep 2019
This is the Czech name for the Powder Gate which is also a 200 foot tower. It was one of 13 gates into the old town. There is an observation deck on the top for tourists to see both the old and new town portion. There is no fee to climb to the observation deck.

Impressive Structure
Sep 2019
We viewed this impressive tower whilst on our guided walking tour of the city. It was one of the original gateways into the old part of the city and is very imposing. The stunning gothic structure certainly stands out and due to its size is very difficult to miss! As its name suggests it was built to store gun powder. It’s close to several other tourist attractions and there are quite a few cafes and restaurants nearby if you fancy a pit stop.
