The team gathered around the art collective “Pimp my pump” was in charge of their artistic renovation and they painted more than a hundred pumps almost a decade ago.
Over the years, the project was somewhat forgotten, but it is now being revitalized and upgraded at the initiative of the Zagreb Tourist Board. In addition to adapting the routes to epidemiological measures because they allow for individual tours, the project also carries a message of sustainability.
Many pumps are still up and running, and the water inside is drinkable, so we invite all recreationists and random passers-by to raise awareness of sustainability and fill their bottles with fresh water from the pump, thus reducing the impact of plastics on the environment.
