If you visit the Astrological Clock (and that is pretty much a given!) don't miss out on Powder Gate. Head up Celetná ulice, taking in the great (and occasionally awful) souvenir and toy shops, and go and see this stunning building.

It looks exactly like what would an old Medieval tower where people are tortured and kept prisoner until a gentleman thief Robin Hood style saves them, a dark and menacing place always with a thunderstorm raging over it. Of course, there's always traffic all around, so this effect is kind of reduced.

Ons of many historic buildings/towers. Lost of history. Take time and study it for a while. It come's alive.

Have to say that I am not really into buildings, this review is more about the surrounding area which is worth a visit overall as there is some really nice architecture next to this attraction and there are some nice shops.
Worth a visit if you have time.

After quite a few stair you reach the top of the tower - we were out definitely out of breath but the climb was worth the view!
