The Water Tower is an emblematic sight in Drobeta Turnu Severin! Must see if you visit this part of Romania.

The tower is in the centre of the city, near two other beautiful buildings: boy school and girl school. It's very well conserved and has illumination for the night. It can be visited inside betwen 08 am and 16.30. It's a must see in Drobeta.

A very symbolic part of the city, something worth visiting if you're in Severin. There are a lot of steps to climb and the elevator doesn't work all the time. I can't say it's a wow but it's a nice thing to tick.

We came at night to see the lights. The toner was under reconstruction, so we only saw it from the outside. I wish we could have seen the view from the top, but never the less, it was beautiful.

It's a nice water tower and if you're visiting the town it worth a short walk for some good photos You can spend some quality time in the nearby park and have your lunch on the many terraces that you can find in that area

The second most good thing from this town. Unfortunately we could not visit the inside of it. The whole area must be seen on both day light and night time.

This is near the town centre, takes about 5 mins to see, but quite nice if you are there anyway. It is lit up at night.
