The words came out of mouth that this is the most beautiful fountain I ever saw. The size over whelms you, the water is thundering. It really grabs you. Great place to chill and have lunch. I'm told Chopin used to visit this fountain.

When seeing from far away, it doesn't seem to be that large! It's so beautiful, especially at night, when it's illuminated with a slightly yellowish light.

Very pretty fountain, located in the Saxon gardens, near the Monunent to the unknown soldier. Italian-style fountain, quite a thing to behold.
