Water Tower

The Vukovar Water Tower, 50 meters tall and with a volume of 2200 cubic meters of water, was built in the late 60’s, i.e. 70’s. Its volume and size made it one of the largest structures of that type in Europe at the time. Until the war, the top of the Water Tower housed a restaurant with a view of Vukovar and the Danube. During the Serbian aggression on Vukovar, the Water Tower was one of the most common targets for enemy artillery which caused over 600 points of damage, some of which are still visible. During the war, on the water tower stood a flag as a sign of Croatian unity and strength, although the building’s durability and quality of construction were suspected at first. Even after more than 20 years, the water tower still stands proudly as a witness of Serbian aggression, Croatian defenders and Vukovar.
