The Water Tower, which dates from the 16th century is a mighty renaissance town fortification on the edge of the river Drava in Lent.

The inhabitants of Maribor built it because of the continual fear of attacks by the Turks and with it moved the town defence right down to the edge of the river. When the dyke in Melje was completed for the power station in Zlatoličje the level of the river Drava began to rise, and it became necessary to protect the tower. By placing it on a new foundation that was 142 cm higher than the original one the tower was protected.

Since 1980 the tower has housed a wine shop, which was the first of its kind in Slovenia and visitors often called it the Wine Tower instead of the Water Tower!

It's time to dig this old topic! :wink:

Not really my place, but for one week my working place was in Image Tyumen.
So this is its former water tower, now there's an officer's club in it.

It's time to dig this topic up again.

For in total eight weeks I have seen this one every day in our way to work.
It's located in southern Shanghai, near Hangpu river.
