Located just inside what we would call the main entrance, is this nice looking fountain, where you can fill your bottle up with free water. Photos can be better taken from the wall (pass required). It also seemed to us to be a main meeting...More

If you are here, you have just come in the most convenient gate, with a sloped walkway as well as stairs, Ploce Gate, also lovely. To the left of the Ploce Gate and the fountain is the entrance to the City Walls, a wonderful experience....More

We didn't understand why there is such a big draw to this fountain... which has no real architectural appeal on its outside. It is massive, that is for sure... but nothing eye-catching in our opinion. You'll walk by it on Stradun next to Pile Gate...More

It's one of the first things you see when you come into the Old Town from the Pile Gate. Lots of people use this spot as a meeting point so it's always crowded.

If you enter through the pile gate it would be hard to miss. It’s an impressive fountain and a great spot to refill your water bottles. There are always lots of people sitting on it and the walking tours start here

This fountain is pretty impressive with how large it is, however there wasn't much to it. It was a great landmark to meet people at, but the detail of the fountain just wasn't impressive to me. It is very large but again, I just felt...More
