One of the few "fountain" attractions that you don't have to line up and take a photo. A lovely fountain that was designed by Augustyn Schöps in the years 1758-66. I believe it sits on top of a well. It is situated in the Old market Square in front of the Town Hall in Poznan.

This fountain is most popular, but it is a part of composition of other fountains on the square. Old. Beautiful.

Among the many attractions of the Poznan's Old Market square, the most prominent (in my opinion) are the abundance of fountains. The most famous are the 4 “Mythological Roman theme” fountains: Fountain of Mars, Fountain of Apollo, Fountain of Neptune and the last one, which my wife and me think is the most beautiful of them all is the Proserpine's Fountain situated in the right corner of the Town Hall’s front. This rococo fountain, erected in 1776 by Augustine Schöps, depicts the abduction of Proserpine by Pluto, the Greek mythology ruler of the underworld.

This fountain is in front of the Town Hall so you can't miss it. Unfortunately the entire Rynek was under reconstruction when we visited in March. There was no water in it in March.

It is one of four fountains in each corner of the market square depicting characters from Roman mythology. Dating back to 1766, this beautiful sandstone fountain by Augustine Schöps depicts the Roman goddess of grain and agriculture being dramatically abducted by the God of the Underworld.

Visited the fountain and market during our travels in Poland. Poznan has so much history to visit. The building surrounding the fountain with all the bright colors eludes happiness. Every get a chance to visit the market with all the vendors in the square... You will have the time of your life.

Puzzled about why this sculpture is popular. Depicted is the abduction of Proserpina (Persephone) by Pluto (Hades) who forced her to marry him. Greek mythology was popular during the last part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The sculpture dates from 1776. Some 150 years earlier an Italian Baroque artist called Bernini made another (sculpture) version with the same theme. It can still be seen in the Villa Borghese in Rome. The most striking difference is that in Poznan Proserpina looks rather benevolent, while in Rome she resists and shows aversion towards her kidnapper. In Poznan Pluto looks almost good natured, while in Rome he shows hardly any emotion (no mercy). In either case, abduction of a woman for whatever purpose is not a reason for celebration.

This is one of the famous fountain on the old market place made by Augustine Schöps and was erected in 1776. It depicts the abduction of Proserpine by Pluto, the Greek mythology ruler of the underworld..
There are 4 fountains around the greek mythology and they are all different.
If you have time please go around this old market place
