Rather fun to look at and search for all the details. Some of the figures are very well made, other a mit more "schematic". But lots of details!

I came here on a bleak, wet Sunday morning. Almost everything was closed, but this really brightened my day. I must say that the cobblestones really took it out on my feet.

An art masterpiece that became soon a city's landmark attracting families with kids, tourists as well as the local people. The sculptured fountain full of encoded messages and wisdom is a true magnet for all. It can be easily found opposite the Town hall.

Situated in a perfect location of the town, this fountain is a beautiful, intricately sculpted work of art. The sculptures are strange yet fascinatingly original! Well worth checking out.

The fountain is located in the old town square and is well maintained. You can sit on the chairs and enjoy a sunshine afternoon.

We were there in the winter, so the water was off and the kids could not play in it, but it is nonetheless very beautiful.

Most fountains in Olomouc are grand, dark and serious, this one is newer, very cute and kids love it. I passed by several times during my 2 day visit in Olomouc and there were always kids playing around this one.

Located near one corner of the old town square, opposite to the Holy Trinity Column. The fountain had nice sculptures; very realistic turtle. An interesting place where you can just sit down and take a good rest.

I love architecture both historic and modern. And this time I enjoyed admiring the Arion Fountain even more with my shoes taken off wading in water. Being in the city of fountain this is the right place to calm down during the hot summer day.
