Bulevardul Ferdinand I nr.33, București, Romania


Foișorul de Foc (literally The Fire Tower) is a 42-metre high building and it was built in 1890, two years after the previous watchtower, Turnul Colței, built in 1715 and demolished. The plans were made by George Mandrea, back then the chief-architect of Bucharest. Foișorul de Foc had a double role, as it was also designed to be a water tower, too, not just an observing one.
