It's a fountain!
Apr 2021
It's a great fountain in the centre of the square. If you like fountains then it is an impressive bit of sculpture.

It is surrounded by benches and plenty of place for little ones to run around, as well as the myriad of food and refreshment options around the square, so not a bad place to relax and soak in the atmosphere of this beautiful little city.

One of dominant places
Jan 2020
I can imagine this place to be great hang out spot in hot summer days. Places right at the main square, it's the one of the biggest dominant places of the city and definitely not something you can, neither should, miss in České Budějovice.

Lots of water and very pretty. Certainly beats the one at Hameln. It's a lovely square with attractive buildings around it.

Pretty fountain
Jul 2019 • Couples
Samson’s Fountain dominates the middle of the main square in Ceske Budejovice. It is especially beautiful at night when there are lights illuminating the fountain. There are benches situated around the fountain to sit an relax on.

Fountain in the middle of square
Jul 2019 • Couples
There is a statue of biblical Samson fighting with a lion on the top of this fountain, therefore the name of the fountain is Samson's. There are benches around, so it is nice to sit and watch the gushing water, the people walking around, or the beautiful houses surrounding the square. I liked takeing pictures of the fountain in the night, it was simply wonderful.
