Plzen City, Czech Republic (1532)
This former water tower is in the metropolis of West Bohemia, founded by the Czech king Wenceslas II. It was constructed as a component of the city's fortifications and Prague Gate. After 1822 it had a story added in the French Imperial style; a late Gothic portal was placed here in 1912.
