Gunpowder Tower is located in the old city, which is one of the thirteen famous gates in Prague. At first glance, the powder tower feels very similar to the old city bridge tower, which is the origin of the original design inspiration. The powder tower has a BLACK-GREY appearance, Gothic architectural style, and its spires soar into the sky. Every day, countless people flow through the powder tower and enter the old city. This is also a dividing point. Entering the old city, the streets are narrow and delicate, mostly pedestrians strolling leisurely, strolling through various boutique shops, and enjoying the ancient buildings along the way. On the other side of the pyrotechnics tower, there are broad roads, huge shopping malls, exquisite cinemas, commercial banks and so on. The prosperous modern commercial society is unfolding in front of us.
The shape of the powder tower is a Gothic gate. It was built in 1475 and used to be one of the 13 gates of the old city of Prague. Designed by Czech architect and sculptor Matj Rejsek, it imitates the old city bridge tower designed by Peter Pallerer and connects to the palace nearby through a small bridge. In 1483, when it was not yet completed, Vladislav IV moved the palace to Prague Castle. With the expansion of the new town, the importance of the building was greatly reduced, and the last part of the tower, such as the top, was hastily completed. Thereafter, only the crowning of the monarch needs to enter the road of crowning through this gate.
The old city's Powder Tower is the only one that survives in Prague's 13 gates. When I saw it, I thought it was so similar to Charlie Bridge Tower. Later, I found out that it was designed and built according to Charlie Bridge Tower. Until 1836, the monarchs had to go through this gate to St. Witt's Cathedral to be crowned. Unexpectedly parked under the tower, there is an old-fashioned lengthened Lincoln used to drive a party. The street is very narrow. The parked car occupies a lot of traffic space. I don't know if this is illegal. It feels strange, like parked under Tiananmen Gate.
Go through the old city and climb to the top of the powder tower 360 degrees to overlook the whole old city of Prague.
Gunpowder Tower is located in the old city of Prague. Its black Gothic spire is 65 meters high and is one of the landmarks of Prague. The gunpowder tower was once one of the earliest 13 gates in Prague's old city. It was rebuilt on the site of the gate in the 15th century. It is still the starting point of the road to the coronation of the castle. Background: In the 16th century, the king allowed magicians to study alchemy in the powder tower. In the 17th century, it was used as a powder depot, hence the name of the powder tower. The back of the tower is more beautiful than the front. There is a square in front of the tower. Some folk artists perform. I see an artist who plays with bubbles. Bubbles are colorful in the sunshine and attract a lot of people.
Gunpowder Tower is located in the city of Prague, Czech capital. It was built in the 11th century. It was originally used as a fortress of the moat. It was later used to store gunpowder, so it was called gunpowder tower. Now it has become the best place to overlook Prague.
In the morning, I went to see the powder tower and felt its splendor. From the powder tower, there was a pedestrian street. There were many doll shops on the road. It was lovely. There was also the Czech characteristic cylinder. It was delicious. Recently, I saw it in Wanda Square. I went to buy it. It was unparalleled in taste.
The Powder Tower is the starting point for the old town. The whole building is dark and autumn-prone, and I don't know whether it's old or intentional. It's especially dark anyway. The building is very high. This building can be climbed up and seen. You need to buy tickets under the tower.
The ticket vending machine at the entrance of the gunpowder tower, which paid for the tickets by itself, showed the Czech army's dress in different military categories in different periods, as well as the display of military parades and military etiquette teams on the screen.
