Description

Graduation towers - unique and the largest wooden structure in Europe for evaporating water from brine, were designed by Jakub Graff - professor of the Mining Academy in Kielce. Three such structures, arranged in the shape of a horseshoe, were built in Ciechocinek.
The construction of graduation towers I and II lasted from 1824 to 1828, the third one was built in 1859. The base of the graduation tower consists of about 7000 oak piles driven into the ground, on which a spruce-pine construction filled with blackthorn was placed, along which the brine flows.
