Silent witness / Vodotoranj u Vukovaru / Nijemi svjedok

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

My first photo with tripod

Dedicated to my friend Marin Stanisic.

Before the war in Croatia (1991.) this building was a water tower, observation deck and restaurant. During the war, before the fall of Vukovar, has suffered a lot of direct hits from weapons of various calibres. Today is a silent witness that resembles something that should not have happened.
