Small Water Tower
It was built in 1913 according to the plans made by J. Banheyer. There is a drilled well and underground water tank under the water tower and another tank on the top. The old water tower is 19 metres high and may take the capacity of up to 50,000 litres of water. Today it holds a central place at the main square in front of the Dunav hotel and City Hall, on the main square. The water tower is adorned by late-recession elements of reinforced concrete. It was demolished in the Homeland war, after which it was renovated so it became one of the most recognisable motifs of Vukovar. The water tower had several functions – it was primarily used as a water storage in case of fire or for sprinkling the city streets.
