W for Water Tower

The water tower was built in 1885 in neogothic style. It's been in public use since the 1st of July of the same year. There were some breaks during its development, but it's been working since 1980 until today. The tower's height is 26 metres and its diameter is 15,5 metres.  The tank contains 680 cubic metres of water. The tower survived the WWII despite that nearly 90 per cent of Kolobrzeg was destroyed during battles. Nowadays there is a restaurant there with local brewery of the Colberg beer.

Wieża ciśnień została wybudowana w 1885 r. w stylu neogotyckim i pracę rozpoczęła 1 lipca tego roku. W tym czasie nastąpiły przerwy na rozbudowę, ale od 1980 r. wieża działa po dziś dzień. Wysokość wieży wynosi 26 metrów, a średnica 15,5 metra. Zbiornik mieści 680 m3 wody. Wieża ciśnień przetrwała drugą wojnę światową, mimo iż 90 procent Kołobrzegu zniszczyły walki. Obecnie znajduje się w niej restauracja z lokalnym piwem Colberg.

  8. Regarding your question at today's post, each fall, more than a million tulip bulbs are planted in the various flowerbeds in Ottawa and Gatineau for the festival.

  11. When I think water tower, I think of those 20th century ones in the US, not nearly so interesting!
