 Summary:
 This paper presents a research dealing with the phenomenon of water in the city of Subotica, namely places of memory, symbols and water marks as a key element in the public space. The subject of research in the broader context is the cultural memory of a city on its own development, which manifests itself in the memory of the individual and groups, but, more importantly, in the architecture and urban planning of the city as the material expression of social life. Through the research process, the connection between architecture, urban morphos and collective memory of the inhabitants has been confirmed. It was also found that the water element is one of the most important factors that influenced the spatial disposition of the city structure. Due to the lack of active politics, there is a doubt that this connection will be forgotten, therefore it is necessary to redefine the identity of Subotica, or to establish it simultaneously on collective memories of people, and material or non-material cultural heritage, through the process of contemporary creativity.
