When did the pool base get removed to turn this into a DRINKING FOUNTAIN
Aug 2019
Check out the various photos & note the change to the base ... when did that occur?
I can hazard a guess.
The current style allows all the passersby to actually grab a refreshing drink & cool down.
The Boy above is cute but hardly unique. Overall an attractive & now functional fountain.

So why the change? My guess is the local council didn't want the risk of someone falling in & copping some litigation, so rather than put a screen of some sort over the pool section ( which would have looked pretty awful ) just remove it.
Croatia on the whole don't seem overly cautious about risk prevention. They assume you look out for yourself & your kids.
They way it should be before "Super Nanny" took over local councils.

Nice Fountain
Aug 2019
Nice small fountain in the old town square. Good location near the edge of the port and adjacent to the clock tower.
Have a look at it but it's nothing too special in our view. Simply a fountain and you'll walk by for sure.

Great people watching
Sep 2018
This is really the centerpoint of the square. The square itself seemed to be where there was always activity of some sorts. Early in the morning the fountain was the domain of the town's pidgeons who were drinking and bathing in the water. As the day progressed the birds were replaced by locals and tourists who came for a drink or to splash pidgeon water on their faces. There's nothing all that special about the fountain but it's fun to watch the uses to which it is put.

Your time visiting this site is less ...than the time you spent reading this review! There are a number of walkby sites in Rovinj This is on of them.

Helpful hint: Allow 10 minutes to find someone who will take your picture standing here. The lighting is glorious 1/2 hour after the sun sets!

it is a small fountain
Oct 2018 • Couples
this small fountain, is located also on the main square opposite the " Town Clock Tower "... stand there it is good for people watching, you are in the heart of Rovinj, and if you are in luck like we were, a childen choir will perform songs for you.There are also many restaurants located here as well as sightseeing boats.

nice fountain

It situated in the middle of main square, it should be a landmark of the old town. Not sure if it's the slack season, haven't seem water from the fountain.

A fountain with a small boy statue
Oct 2018 • Solo
I noticed it during my walk of historic Rovinj due to its central location. I took some pictures of this attraction as well as those of the clock located near by.
