Water Tower (Maribor-Slovenia)

The Water tower is a medieval fort in Maribor situated on the bank of Drava. Built in 1555 in a Renaissance, pentagonal style, the tower was a key part of the southern Maribor fortification against the Turkish invasion. Even though it was planned for demolition in the middle of the last century, architect Jože Požaluk led a project to build the new and uplifted foundations which preserved this Maribor landmark. Water tower remains in function even today, although in a significantly different role. Namely, it is now a winery and a wine cellar. Wine shop opened in 2009 and sells top-quality Slovenian wines. Enjoying the quality wine, romantic atmosphere and medieval architecture make the Water tower an attraction You should not miss.
