There's a lot of construction around. I couldn't even enjoy the fountain during the day. The machines were in all my pictures. It was a little disappointing.

Not big, but a nice small park with some shade trees and a great water feature which really keeps you cool. The Russian monument is pretty impressive and worth seeing. Definitely somewhere to stop for rest of just sit and watch Austrian life go by.

Huge fountain in the center of Vienna. It is totally worth seeing if you are in the area. Another one of the beautiful monuments in the cities.

Quite big and nice fountain adjacent to the Soviet War Memorial. Fine place to relax. To all those who say it's not working: ofcourse it'll not work during winter months. Get your expectations right.

This is a dried up fountain, located next to the Soviet war memorial. While the memorial itself is lovely, the dried up fountain is not.

I don't think so because the water pipes freeze due to dropping temperature
