So called because it was used to store gunpowder, this city gate bears a striking similarity to the tower on Charles Bridge. Located next to Obecni Dum, if you are in the area it is worth a visit and there are plenty of shops and cafes nearby to not make it a wasted trip but there is little else to do than admire and take a picture.
