Water Tower

Water Tower

Defence Tower
This mighty Renaissance town fortification from the 16th century can be seen close by the river Drava at Lent, the street Usnjarska ulica, one of the oldest streets in the town, will lead you past it. The inhabitants built the tower on account of the constant fear of Turkish raids and with the tower moved the defence of the town also down to the river.

Today it stands on new foundations which are 142 cm higher than originally. This was on account of the rising surface of the water on the completion of the dam in Melje.

Above the Water Tower from the walls of the old Jewish quarter rises the Jewish Tower.
