Zilaiskalns water tower is an art deco style building, which used to supply water to the peat factory and the village.

The tower and its ancillary building are home to an exhibition with its own architectural value and provide a 360-degree panoramic view from top of hill Zilaiskalns; the exhibition tells about the peat factory and the nearby workers' village, local nature features and the water supply system established for the purposes of the village.

Virtual glasses will take you on a flight over the hill Zilaiskalns to tell about the everyday life of ancient tribes, legends and stories of the hill; from Zilaiskalns station, the journey continues in a narrow-gauge train. Visitors can see the water reservoir on the top floor, where one will also find the viewing platform.
