The guidebooks all mentioned the old towers in Maribor, but gave them different names, especially the judgemant tower and the water tower were mixed up. I think I found out which tower is which, if not, please let me know.

There are some parts left of the old defense systems from the second part of the 16th century. Close to the Drava there is the old water tower and the round judgement tower. Probably because both are right next to the river bank, the judgement tower is sometimes called the water tower.
From what I read on the sign next to the round tower, this is in fact called the judgement tower, named so because there were (witch) trials held there.

Next to the Jewish tower there is the old synagogue. I don't know if it is still
used as a synagogue , probably not as it seems there is foto gallery in it now.
