Touching monument (and story) easy to miss
Apr 2018 • Couples
On first approach it looks like a fairly normal (interesting) fountain,
with a forlorn figure depicted laying down, with water pouring out of a urn.
Usually our knowledge would stop there, (as the explanation is in Serbian), however,
being on a free walking tour, our guide told us the very sad story, of the figure (boy) depicted on the pedestal.

The Čukur fountain
Dec 2017 • Couples
This monument was built to commemorate the Čukur Fountain incident of 15 June 1862, starting with the death of a young boy and growing into a conflict between Serbia and the Ottoman Empire.
The memorial fountain was erected in 1931.

Very evocative fountain in the very center of Belgrade
May 2016 • Solo
Here in Dobracina street, there is a beautiful small fountain with the bronze statue of a boy on the top of it. You can find it, descending from the building of National Theater and passing across the Gospodar Jevremova str. The place is memorised in the connection with the event, that happened in 1862, when Turkish soldiers provoked the incident, that ended with fatal issue. One boy, who worked as the apprentice at the workshop of his master of craft, was sent to the fountain by his master to fetch the water. While a boy waited to fill up his jug, three Turkish soldiers approached him and asked to drink from his pitcher. After boy's refusal, they attacked him, as a matter of fact, one of the soldiers stabbed a boy with the bayonet or according to another version, a boy was hit with a full jug on his head.
After this tragic event the things rushed to the final liberation from the Osman rule.
Great monument indeed, that I visited recently.

Nice sculpture, the place has historical significance
Mar 2015 • Family
The fountain is nice and not big. The beautiful sculpture, a boy with the broken jewer, was built by famous Serbian sculptor (I like his works :)) Simeon Roksandić. It is located close to Belgrade center (about 5 min walk), in Dobracina street. It is good for travelers that like to walk and visit Dorcol in Belgrade. I think that sculpture is very nice and specific, but I do not think that it is “must see” attraction, if someone does not have enough time.
The place has historical significance... As I know, the old fountain was important because it is the venue of a conflict between a Serbian boy (I think he was killed) and Turkish soldiers in 1862. This event instigated the shelling against Serbs. After that, these events instigated final liberation of Belgrade from the Turks.

Perfect for relaxation on the sun

If outside is too hot and you need a pool, just enter the Ckuru fountain and get relaxed. I recommend.
