European Square and Artynov Tower

city center

The park around the square is located in the heart of the city and is one of the favorite places to relax. The main symbol of Vinnytsia and its business card — the Artynov water tower is located here.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the architect Hryhorii Artynov created it as a water-retaining construction of the city water supply system and an observation tower of the fire-brigade. The clock was supposed to give it the appearance of a town hall. For more than a hundred years of existence, the tower has performed various functions and changed many residents. Currently, it is a home of the Vinnytsia region`s Soldiers Museum and Podillia Tourist Information Center.

You can often hear young music bands on the European Square, during festivals and celebrations there are themed locations. And a walk in the park — a real pleasure at any time of a year. Three times a day the melody of the legendary Shchedryk (Carol of the bells) by M. Leontovych, which made him famous all over the world, is heard from the tower.
