The Powder Tower

The Powder Tower is one of the original 13 city gates to the Old Town. The construction of the tower began in 1475. The tower was used to store gunpowder in the 17th century and so the tower is called the name. The route from this profound Gothic city gate through the old town to Prague Castle which coronation parades for successive kings used to be held along is called the Royal Route.

Celetna Street

Celetna Street runs from the Powder Tower to the Old Town Square.
