  • Fonta Cola, Lion fountain, Leopoldov fountain are all one and the same object, located on one of the most istoptannyh tourist trails of the Czech capital of Prague Castle (or more precisely, in its second yard). It is believed that this hydraulic structure is one of the oldest fountains of Prague. All the above names fountain in one way or another connected with either its creator-architect (Ieronom, Jeroným Kohl) or crowned, in whose reign it was built (Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I), or (c) three representatives of the feline vzgromozdivshimisja at its upper tier. The fountain was erected in the year 1686 of sandstone in rannebarochnom style. First tier fountain is stone Bowl, decorated with cartouches worn around the perimeter with a picture of the letter "L" (What Will the monarch referred to above). Next level lies on the shoulders of the ancient deity and heroes-Mercury, volcano, Neptune and Hercules, it is richly decorated with festoons and mascarons 956429 as lion's heads, from the jaws of izrygajushhih water jets. Following the bowl is more modestly designed, supported on the shoulders of tailed newts. And at the top of the fountain is the lion's Trinity with one ball/sphere on his shoulders. Noticed, that during all visits to Prague Castle on a drive than actually just racing by this interesting object, completely oblivious. But it is attention, mon cher-obviously deserves!

  • Nice piece of artwork. Useful steps around it for taking a break from all the walking around the palace buildings.
  • Nice small fountain, but not operational as of May 6th, 2018.
  • This is what I call functioning piece of art and hundreds of years old. It it still is a sight to see.
  • Great castle complex with more than 1000 of history. Must visiting.
  • Great spot for a photo when visiting the castle. Its crowded so don't expect a solo shot.
