You can find the Maximillion's Fountain in the main square of Bratislava. This statue built in 1572, featuring a 10.5 metre column. At the top of the column there is a statue of a armoured knight known as Roland, a legendary character believed to protect the city. As such, the statue is also referred to by some to be the Roland's statue.
You can sit on the bench, sharing space with the Napoleon's Army Soldier statue and look at the fountain, its worthing reading up on the legend as well, which is quite interesting and somewhat quirky like much of what you find in the city center of Bratislava.
Like most fountains in Central Europe, we found the Maximilian's Fountain emptied of water during the time of our visit in March. However, it seemed like a nice contribution of the main square, something that would be nice to see during the warmer months of the year when in operation.
