Brick Gate & Casements information
The 19th-century Brick Gate (Cihelná brána) houses an exhibition on the history of Prague’s fortifications. The Casemates are a system of vaulted brick tunnels within the ramparts that were built in the 17th and 18th centuries. The highlight of a tour is the barrel-vaulted Gorlice Hall, which houses six of the original baroque statues from Charles Bridge.
