Description

The Powder Gate, or Powder Tower is located in the Old Town of Prague, precisely in the northeastern part. It was built in the 11th century and at that time it was one of the thirteen gates surrounding the center of the city of Prague. It is one of the most important late Gothic monuments in Prague.
It is the monumental entrance to the Old Town, through which the coronation procession of Bohemian kings passed.
The Powder Tower, which was once used as a gunpowder store, is still considered the beginning of the Coronation Way or Royal Way, which leads to Prague Castle.
The viewing gallery is located at a height of 44 meters.
