Probably the most photogenic symbol of the town, with two towers, similar to Prague Gate, but unlike it preserved thanks to the efforts of the local figures of the National Revival movement, particularly A.V. Šembera. As there was little left of both towers after numerous fires in the early 19th century, they were reconstructed in neo-Gothic style. At the beginning of the 20th century the municipality commissioned decoration of the gate by painter Mikoláš Aleš, who painted on the outer side a fresco of St George fighting the dragon, the heraldic symbol of Vysoké Mýto.
