When I arrived in the Old Town of Prague, the first thing I saw was the Powder Tower. It is a more iconic attraction and my first attraction in the Old Town of Prague. Transportation: The Old Town of Prague is actually not big and the attractions are relatively concentrated, so I live near the Old Town and basically reach all the attractions on foot. Going inside through the powder tower is the Old Town Square, the Astronomical Clock and other famous attractions ~ Czech Republic 🇨🇿 does not recognize Chinese driver's license, so it is not possible to rent a car here, you must have an international driver's license. How to play: It is recommended to play with the scenic spots in the Old Town. Personally, I don’t think it’s necessary to go inside the Powder Tower. It doesn’t make sense to climb up, but it’s not very high... It’s better to go to the most beautiful Starbucks to check in and see the panorama of Prague. So just take a look Recommended reason: The gunpowder tower is a Gothic building, black, as if it has been smoked...very historical. The whole building is 65 meters, not too high. The location of the Powder Tower was once one of the 13 gates of the Old Town of Prague, and a tower was later built on this location. There used to be warlocks studying alchemy here, and it was later used to store gunpowder, so it was called the gunpowder tower. It is currently a museum. Although the appearance of the gunpowder tower is dark, there are actually many reliefs, typical of Gothic architecture. There is an observation deck on the powder tower, you can climb up to see Charles Bridge, St. Vitus Cathedral and so on~
