Water tower and Metal Shop Exhibition

Donat Sorokin/TASS
One of Plotinka's landmarks is the water tower located on Prospekt Lenina (Lenina Avenue). It was built in 1886 for the railroad repair services (a railway line from Perm to Ekaterinburg was launched just prior to that). After the repair services were moved from the tower in 1946, it was transformed into a large communal flat. In 1973, in honour of the city's 250th anniversary, the residents were moved out and given individual apartments. The tower was given over to a Metal Shop with a unique collection of various metal objects, such as copper irons, scales and shackles.
