The hundred-year-old water storage facility, built in 1916 under the mountain, belongs to the largest water management company in Lithuania, “Vilniaus vandenys”, and stands out for its unique construction and acoustics – the echo here repeats itself 5-6 times. The reservoir was used until 1987, until now the strategic object of the city’s water supply system was closed and protected, from July 2023 opened to the public.
