At the beginning of the 20th century, a 30 metre water tower was built in Giżycko.


For 96 years, it delivered water to the residents of the town. The reconstruction of the grid in the mid-1990s, however, made it lose its central importance as a technical facility.


It was privatised and a Giżycko-based businessman, Henryk Górny, became the new owner. The structure was remodelled and adapted for the purposes of tourism. A dome was added to the top with an observation deck and a coffee house, now considered as the highest-placed coffee shop in all of Masuria. To get there, you need to climb 129 stairs or take the elevator.

The terrace gives a beautiful view of Lake Niegocin and the town of Giżycko. Alongside the coffee house and the observation deck, the building also houses a private museum with documents and objects that illustrate the life of the town’s former residents.

The Water Tower is open from may up to october.
