A view from the Observation Sphere of the Tower

The Kuwait Towers consist of 3 towers situated along the Gulf Street, Kuwait. The towers were built by Energoprojekt, a company from Belgrade. They opened to the public in March of 1979.

The main tower is 187 metres high and serves as a restaurant and water tower alleged to be holding 4,500 cubic meters of water. It also has a moving Viewing Sphere which completes a full turn every 30 minutes. The second tower is 145.8 metres high and serves as a water tower. The third tower houses equipment to control the flow of electricity and illuminates the two larger towers.
