Brežice Water Tower

Back

Bizeljska cesta 4, 8250 Brežice

The water tower is the most well known landmark of Brežice, visible from afar. It invites you to the town that was known as an important trading town for centuries. The tower was built in 1914 in order to provide the town with water. It is 46 metres high and mostly round. There is an octagonal reservoir on top, placed on sixteen brackets. The tower is adorned with three small balconies. It is based on the ruins of the town defence walls.  Apart from the water tower in Kranj, built in 1911, the Brežice Water Tower is the only example of a water tower from those times in Slovenia and is a proof of an interesting water supply solution for lowland areas. It operated through a power plant until 1983 and today is the landmark of Brežice.
