Vinnytsia Water Tower, Vinnytsia

4.1
The Vinnytsia water tower is a landmark of the city of Vinnytsia constructed in 1912 and located on European Square. It has served as a museum since 1985 and was listed as a cultural monument of local importance on February 17, 1983.
The tower was built in 1912, when the water pipe system was laid out in Vinnytsia. The tower doubled as a fire observation point. The architect was Grigory Artynov. The water was taken from the Southern Bug River and then distributed around the city center.
In 1920, the building stopped functioning as a water tower. During World War II it served as an observation tower, and after the war, it was converted into a residence. In 1985, it was transferred to Vinnytsia Regional Museum. First, it hosted an exposition on the history of the October Revolution and World War II. In 1993, an exposition devoted to the Soviet war in Afghanistan was added.
The tower has seven floors and is 28m high. It is made of brick.

  • We really liked the city of Vinnytsia. Two to eat pizza at the entrance. We went upstairs. We ordered a lot of waiting. We ate, we drank and we said to travel. Our eyes were attached to the library cafeteria. Our desserts have decided to eat there. Our waitress ANNA was very sympathetic. We drank two coffees for his smiling face. We ate our desserts. They turned the old water tank into the clock tower. It was a lovely settlement. We really liked this place in our 7 people group. If your path falls to Ukraine, please don't skip here. Go-See and take advantage of Anna's friendly service...
