  • Another tower around the city. Used as a water tower in the past. Looks really nice. Would be nice if you could learn more about it.  more »
  • Continuing his researches in the field of Weirs of the Czech capital, I went to Prague. Surprisingly soulful district-like and a "new" (as compared to the same Staromestem or Gradchanami), but, at the same time, is interesting from an architectural and a beer "point of view". The purpose of my trips was Vinogradskaya water tower (Vinohradská vodárenská věž), which vzmetnula in Prague sky its 40 meters on the street Korunni (Korunní). Walking from the square of the world-just nothing, CHES-Word! Vinohrady (in his time they proudly called Royal After!), as well as any other area of the city, demanded drinking water supply. For these purposes in the year 1882 in neo-Renaissance style by the architect Antonin Turek's (Antonín Turek, whose ownership belong to the projects of a number of beautiful buildings of vinohrady, in particular Neighbourhood market and people's homes in the same area) and It was erected this interesting hydraulic structure. IMHO, at first glance the impression not banal Tower House-Plan Turek's managed to transfer all of the most striking features of neorenessansnoj architecture, ranging from the symmetry and rational division of the façade, and ending with the use of such architectural elements as Rustica and pilasters. Now we can admire the fact that as a result: seven prismatic tower with a beautiful façade is decorated on the top floor of the sculpted statues of Angels with trumpets on corner posts; at Attica (decorative wall, built over the construction of the crowning cornice) the clock is set, just below which marks the Royal Vinohrady in round medallions. Capturing the regular hydraulic must see Prague, I crossed the street and headed into the Korunni institution catering Prague, bearing the name of the object viewed is "Restaurace U Vodárny».
