Interactive map with sights

The aqueduct tower is situated in the old town centre in Brezice, at the corner of the Ulica stare pravde and Bizeljska street. It is visible widely and is the most known point of the city. In Slovenia a similar tower can only be seen in Kranj. It was built in the year 1914 and it is 46 metres high. It was constructed because in this flat town they needed sufficient water pressure. The water tower is in the major part circular. At the top is concluded with the octagonal reservoir, which is raised in 16 consoles. It is decorated with three smaller balconies and it is leaned to the remains of the town's defensive walls. The aqueduct tower presents the monument of the technical progress of the 20th century. Today is inside the coffeehouse Aquarius with three floors, which are not always open. You can see original old musical instruments as gramophones, radios, violins, trumpets and other. The water tower is the symbol of Brezice.
