Chișinău Water Tower ("Turnul de apă din Chișinău") is an architectural monument built in 1892 on a project by the then chief city architect, Alexander Bernadazzi (1831-1907), one of today's symbols of the Moldovan capital. It was a main part of the Chișinău water system. As soon as the tower was completed, the city government opened the city's first sewer system, which had been planned during Carol Schmidt's mayor term. The tower started to serve the central part of the city, with a capacity of about 2000 tons of water per day. It was a water tower until 1940 when it became a fire brigade building, the upper level containing a water tank. The height of the tower is 22 meters and the walls are built of local stone, with a few rows of bricks. . Read more..
