Hara was an old Soviet military base, that they left for 20 years ago.

I celebrated my birthday in the water tower in Riisipere. It was a surprise for my family and my friends. Now they know that I last summer bought a new "toy". There will be a lot of work for many years to renovate this building.

It is a quite amazing story.

When I one time visited Loksa water tower, saw I from the top of the tower, far away - behind all trees, something that could be another water tower.

Later I tried to find this place. It was like a time travel. Old soviet military base, only russians in 10...12 storey houses: music, chickens, russian flags...

But no water tower. I asked an old lady on a balcony on the second floor – where is the tower? She came down, took very freindly my hand and showed me the trail I should go.

Between the trees I saw first a high tower with steel tank, then after 50 meter a solid brick tower, and after further 50 meters a steel tank again.
It was like a science fiction movie!!

After 10 minutes reconnoitring – there was two water towers. Even better!
But it was not easy to take pictures among all these trees.

Sign at the water tower

Wignacourt Water Tower is an interesting stone structure with a three metre high circular pedestal and rounded tower above supported by pilasters. The structure is topped by a floral stone sculpture. From the unusual shape one can immediately surmise that the structure has had nothing to do with defence, habtation or religious worship. In fact, it is a water tower forming part of an aqueduct system which brought water by gravity from grounds around Mdina an d Rabat to Floriana and Valetta. The fountain commemorates the inauguration of the aqueduct in 1615. It is complete with Wignacourt's coat of arms and a drinking trough for horses.

The Water-Information Centre was established on 24 May 2003 by Kiev's city government with the support of the Ministry of Environment of Denmark during the Fifth Ministerial Conference, "Environment for Europe".

The entrance of the centre is in a water tower built in 1876, and the administration center is located in a water tower nearby built in 1872. Both water-towers were reconstructed in 2003, in accordance with original plans. The main exhibition is located in an underground water tank built in 1909, and was designed by Karsten Møller, from Denmark.
