  • Its one of the historical buildings but unfortunately not much attention is taken to keep it in a good condition and prepare some excursions.

  • Very authentic piece of architecture built by famous Shukhov design. You can see similar structures around. Ukraine and the whole world
  • At one of Mykolaiv’s highest points is a water tower designed by the legendary Russian engineer and architect Vladimir Shukhov. It has the trademark hyperboloid structure that Shukhov pioneered and is one of the earliest examples of this design, dating to 1907. More importantly at that time, it also solved a water supply crisis towards the end ofTsarist rule. The tower, 26 metres in height, was finally made obsolete in the 1950s when a new system drew water from the Inhulets River and now stands as a monument to its famous designer.
