Water Tower

Of the bastions, built in the first half of the 18th century, only the Eugenije’s bastion with a water tower and remains of the original Charles’ wall. The water tower dates from 1758, when a stone reservoir, known as the “motor pit”, was installed on the aforementioned bastion. At the end of the 19th century a new pumping channel was built because the old one could no longer perform its function. Two iron tanks were later installed on top of the tower due to the growing need for water supplies. The iron tanks were smaller than the motor pit. The Drava was used for drawing water and the reservoirs were used for fountains on the main square of the old town and four wells.
