  • Look at 30 meters with a height of Zaraysk and yes even in the highest point of the city. If you order a tour, then on the way up you can get to know the working principle of a water tower and other plumbing niceties. Be on the lookout for a small story on the streets of Zarajska.

  • In 1914, with the aim of improving urban water supply was started the construction of a water tower. The author of the draft became structural engineer a. Filippov. For construction was chosen one of the best places in surprising the highest point of the city, which offers a review of almost 30 kilometers. The building turned out to be outstanding-a massive four-story octagonal tower with a height of 29 m. The building is made of red brick and externally very similar to the main tower of a medieval feudal Castle. The core workforce in construction have become Turks, who captured at the beginning of the first world war. After 1916 year the construction of the tower was completed, water were provided with four coming to the Tower Street. Water was taken from residents of small columns not free: two buckets cost 1 penny, barrel-5 kopecks. 27.08.2016, the Tower observation deck opened after renovation. Near the Tower square for rest and another attraction-acting water column age 100 years.
