This fountain is adjacent to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier across the street from the Sofitel Hotel (where we stayed). The fountain is surrounded by statues and a labyrinth of grassy areas and flower gardens and gravel edges. Serene and a perfect addition to the atmosphere of the place.

This fountain is located in one of the most important garden in the center of Warszawa (Ogród Saski), just near the monument of the unknowned soldier. It's a place with many many people and the fountain is impressive

You buses this fountain as my focal destination point whilst going for a run through the city. Even at night it was impressive and just a few meters away is the tomb of the forgotten soldier. Lovely park. Lovely fountain, even at night

We took a quick look at the fountain in early November. It was still operating. I don't know what the hours/days of operation are. Not worth a special trip.

I sat at the fountain and cooled off my feet with the locals. It was a great spot to take a break and rest while people watching.
