ŠIBENIK, 10 July 2020 – The Croatian city of Šibenik has a new, unique attraction. On Poljana square in the centre of town, the country’s first ‘water clock’ fountain has been unveiled.
Powered by a sophisticated mechanism, people can read the time on like on any normal clock with the ‘water’ hands telling the time. Two water jets function as large and small hands on the clock, while the seconds ‘move’ in a circle.
LED lighting lights the clock up at night so it can be read when it is dark.
“We really wanted something attractive in the square, something different, something that had never been seen before,” said deputy Mayor Danijel Mileta.
The water clock is one of the attractions on the Poljana square which has undergone major renovations, including 3-level underground parking for 256 cars, was officially opened last week.
