This is a nice fountain in the center of the old town, in the most lively road Hlavne Namestie. Anybody will see it if walking in the old town. We were very happy to see our embassy next to this.

This is basically a fountain located on the Main Square in the Old City. Nice for taking photos and a popular meeting spot.
