Small simple fountain
Oct 2019
This little fountain features a sculptural centrepiece of the eponymous girl with a deer. The sculpture appears to be made of sandstone and depicts a semi-naked girl sitting on a rock with a long cloth draped over her laps. Next to her is a fawn, that the girl is hugging.

The fountain can be found in the eastern end of Hviezdoslavovo square and close to the monument to Hans Christian Andersen. It’s a small, average looking sculpture and the water wasn’t even flowing when I was there. Fine to take a look if you’re in the square, otherwise I wouldn’t bother.

Visiting the old town of Bratislava.
Mar 2019 • Friends
In the old town during your walk you will certainly pass in front of the “Smallest” fountain of the city, located on the “Praça da cidade Velha”. The fountain whas an inspiration on the farytail written by the brothers “Grimm”. The youngest brother was taking water from a prohibited fountain and got transformed into a small deer, and as she loved so much her brother she never walked away. Thsi fountain is very near the statue from “Petersen” the Danish.

Nice sculpture
Mar 2019 • Couples
There's a lot of nice sculpture in Bratislava, and this is a good one, too, although certainly not a destination on its own. I always notice it, though, when I walk down Hviezdoslavovo namestie, which is a good place for a stroll.

Another great statue.
Dec 2018 • Friends
Walking around the wonderful Christmas market in Hviezdoslavovo Námestie you will come across some cute statues ,Hans Christian Andersen Statue is probably the most photographed but only metres away is Fountain Girl With A Deer,
Its a cute statue and fountain,it's not very detailed but it looks cool ,it's a selfie magnet but with its location in Hviezdoslavovo Námestie and the Christmas market in full swing hardly surprising really.
Well worth checking out.

It's simple but has a Disney-esque feel for those willing to look beyond the concrete
Nov 2018 • Couples
Many people look at this fountain and think "so what" then walk away. I guess it seems simplistic - a young girl with a deer, but if you look further at her face showing sadness and the relationship with that deer, like one of a pet where the pet feels the human sadness and wants to show support, the sculpture takes on a very different feeling.

It's almost Disney-esque, like the story of Cindarella. The sad badly treated step-sister is such a lovely person that all the animals in the forest befriend her. I like this fountain very much, even though no water was running when I visited but I would love to see this with water in the summer, adding yet another element to the fairytale. Also, I kind of like the title "Girl with a Doe" better than the actual one chosen "Girl with a Deer" - what do you think?

A Charming Statue on Hviezdoslavovo Namestie
Nov 2018 • Couples
So we were walking along Hviezdoslavovo namestie from the opera house towards the castle and come across the Girl with a Deer statue. An interesting and charming little statue in the middle of the walkway based on an old German Grimm Brothers fairytale.

The statue itself was never intended to be located here but ended up in this location as it could not be placed in its intended location during the German occupation in WW2.

A charming little sight along the walkway to check out, located right next to the Hans Christian Andersen statue as well so plenty to see in the area.

Girl with Fawn
Oct 2018
What’s not to like about the adoring girl and Fawn. Beside Hans Cristian Anderson. You get two lovely statues for one.

Public Art in a Beautiful Avenue
Aug 2018 • Couples
This small statue of a girl with a deer is a pleasant item of public art. It is located in an a venue of trees as you walk away from the Opera House towards the castle. On a beautiful summer’s day it is a delightful setting.
Thanks for your vote.
