Vinohradská Vodárna Water Tower to be Transformed into Education Center

Vinohradská Vodárna, a building in Prague 10 which was originally built as a water tower but now serves as offices and apartments, will be completely changed within four years.

Five institutions and companies presented a new plan for a unique Hydropolis Prague water supply education centre.

Pavel Válek from the Prague Water Management Company said they have been planning the reconstruction of the tower for several years. “I am glad that, thanks to the initiative of PVK and Veolia Group, we will finally be able to expand the project with unique exhibitions that will make it possible to turn the building into a water supply education centre,” he added.

Petr Hlubuček, Prague Deputy Mayor for the Environment, also commented: “This project will make it possible to introduce schools, kindergartens and the general public to water management in a modern way. Through its implementation, we will significantly contribute to understanding the context of the goals of adapting to climate change.”

The new complex will be open to the public in 2024. There will be a public space with multiple water and game elements, a multimedia information centre, educational exhibitions, courses and discussions.

In the tower, visitors can find a conference hall and exposition. Its five underground chambers will be opened up to host, for example, a multimedia hall. There will be a public green space on the surface.
