This Gothic Stone Fountain is situated right in the central square. A beautiful piece of architecture that was probably used to gather water for humans and animals.

Central water facility
Dec 2019
This is situated in the middle of the town and was used as a water collection point. The air was crisp and clean on the day that we visited and we really enjoyed our walk through the town.

Gothic stone fountain with many sculptures and towers
Oct 2019
The Gothic stone fountain is a fountain on Rejsek Square that was built in 1493 by Matěj Rejsek. The Gothic influences are clear as all around the fountain are Gothic style sculptures and miniature towers. The fountain is twelve-sided and exceptionally large for something only has a couple of water outlets and seems to be fully enclosed with a hexagonal roof. The fountain doesn’t seem to dispense water, at least not when I was there.

The fountain is considered a landmark of the city and is worth looking for its monumental size, although I wouldn’t go out of the way unless you have time.

Interesting part of the town
Aug 2019
At first it is just a surprise in the middle of a small square. When you walk around you realize that this is interesting fountain, important for the old city. Citizens care and maintain the fountain as centuries ago. It was built in the 15. Century and has some Gothic details.

Gothic Fountain
Aug 2019
The fountain was probably built in 1493-1495. It is a richly decorated twelve-sided stone prism in the late Gothic style. The builder captured the relationship of the inhabitants to the precious water, which in the Middle Ages had to be brought to the town by several kilometers long wooden pipeline.
The fountain served as a reservoir of drinking water until 1890.

We were exploring the town after lunch and came across this by chance. Great to see 13th century architecture so well preserved.

This would be considered a Gothic architecture, dating to the 15th century. I would not make a special trip.

Ok for a picture or two but don’t drive from Prague for that lol. Walking around in this charming city, you will be able to stop and see it.
