Water Tower in Katowice-Giszowiec

The water tower is located in Giszowiec, a district of Katowice. It was built at the beginning of the 20th century in the highest point of the area, and is definitely an architectural gem. It fell into disuse many years ago. In the 90s, a telecommunication company placed an antenna at the top of it, and restored its beauty. (based on wikipedia.pl entry)
