This is a 17th century creation of Venetian sculpture. You will find this in Mestni trg near the city hall in the old part of town. The fountain is a beauty and it depicts three different Gods.

This is a lovely fountain near the Town Hall but is actually a copy of the original fountain which is now kept in the National Gallery - lovely surroundings!!
