Liked this fountain of all those in the square. It has more charm and fantasy about it. The turtle & the sculpture of the 2 children add to it. Be sure to pick up a map, with detailed information, (Olomouc in a nutshell) at the tourist office beside the Town Hall.

It's a lovely fountain situated on the central square of Olomouc. You'll hardly pass by it... but it's worth to stop for a minute and descry all the details. Yes, of cause, there are bigger and greater fountains in the world. But Arion Fountain seemed to me really unique with its design and ideas it brings... You won't pass by...... More

Another beautiful fountain in the city after a while you lose count of them. What is good is that they are all working and well looked after.

The craftsmanship is incredible and well worth a look but the style is not to my taste. Others with more sophisticated tastes than me will be able to tell you more about just how masterful this fountain is.
