    This is one of the gates to the old city and had to be restored after taking serious damage during the Battle Of Prague. That said, it has been done well and is faithful to the original. Were it not for the black colouring of the stone, it would look like a miniature fairy castle. I am told that this colouring is due to type of stone, which turns from yellow to black as it ages, and not due to pollution. Much of Dresden is built from a similar stone. The view from the top is also well worth the climb with great picture opportunities.

    One of the most impressive historical building in this part of the city. Old entrance to the Old Prague City, was the part of the city walls. You can come in and climb over the top. Entrance fee. Great place to make some photos. Very popular for tourists.

    A great site to visit in the city centre. Budget approximately 30 minutes here. Cost is 100 CZK and worth it. The panoramic views from the top are fantastic and great for photos and selfies - make sure you have a good grip on your camera, there are no windows or netting stopping you from losing it over the side. No toilet/WC or souvenir shop, and the stairs to access each floor are very steep and narrow. You must have excellent mobility to climb these stairs: NOT wheelchair, stroller, or child friendly (must be able to climb stairs well, parents will have difficulty carrying anything up these steps). I recommend a quick visit here.

    anytime I am visiting this area, this tower is taking my attention all the time. it is gorgeous and unique. one of the jewels of Prague. Easy to understand why there is always people taking pictures in front of it.

    I'm really surprised there were not more people up here. For the half an hour or so that we were at the top, there were only about four other people walking around. I think it might be because the entrance is a bit hidden. You have to go through a doorway, and up a small staircase before you get to the ticket office. It costs 65 CZK (about $3.25 USD) to climb the tower. This was a steal because once you get to the top, you get 360 view of the city. You’ll get great views of all of the houses and churches, with plenty of Instagrammable spots. Make sure you don’t leave Prague without checking out the Powder Tower!
