The Powder Tower is a dominant feature of Republic Square and Na Příkopě Street. The Gothic Gate has a long history. The original gate, which used to stand at the same place, served as one of the gates of the Old Town fort. After the establishment of the New City, this gate was no more in use and was desolated. Later it was decided, new gate should have been built. Its construction began in the 15th century, but the Old Town lost interest and left it unfinished. Until the mid-18th century it served as a gunpowder depot and that’s how the gate earned it’s name. Today’s appearance was not achieved until the late 19th century. Today the gate is one of the symbols of Prague.

Perhaps the most famous monument in Prague is Charles Bridge. The second oldest bridge in the Czech Republic has been connecting the banks of the Vltava River since 1402. Since the 17th century it has been decorated with 30 Baroque statues and sculptures. Competitors of FORD CHALLENGE PRAGUE Triathlon can admire the bridge during the swimming course that take place around Střelecký Island and offers spectacular view on the Charles Bridge with the Prague Castle in the background.

Another significant monument on the FORD CHALLENGE PRAGUE Triathlon route is the Dancing House on the right bank of the Vltava River at the corner of Rašínovo nábřeží and Jiráskovo náměstí. The building bears its name according to the shape of two corner towers, inspired by the famous interwar dance couple Ginder and Fred.

The last depicted monument is Vyšehrad – situated on the right bank of the Vltava River and its towers are unmistakable. There are many legends from the beginning of Czech history connected to Vyšehrad. Many prominent Czech personalities are buried at the Vyšehrad Cemetery. Vyšehrad acquired its present by the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, when the right riverside of the Vltava was connected with the southern surroundings of the town with a tunnel.
