Old Flood Gates

ecluza

Today I’ll tell you a little more about the old flood gate in Timisoara, which is also the city’s newest touristic attraction. This complex dates back to approximately 1726, after the city was conquered by Prince Eugene of Savoy. The archaeologists discovered here parts of bricks, ceramics and wood from around that time. The team of archaeologists that worked here also realized that the flood gate was meant to protect to old fortifications from invasions and in about six hours the entire gate could be completely flooded with over 6 feet of water.
