The Powder Tower

Prague, Czech Republic
4.6 / 5
An old Gothic building right in the middle of the street near the metro station “Destroy the Republics”. In its place once stood the city gate. In the XVIII century, a powder warehouse was located here, from where the name of the structure went. Nowadays, a photo exhibition is working inside and an observation deck is open, where you can take some spectacular shots. The Powder Tower reminds tourists of the dark years of the Middle Ages with all its appearance.
