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.

The fountain servers as small water places for kids, but it is very interesting statue as well..in you come close enough you can see historical maps of Olomouc and Moravia, small turtles and many other interesting features...

Amazing set of sculptures. Thank goodness for the English info floor slab. Was actually pleased the fountain is off for winter since you can get right up and see how much is sculpted. Lots of tiny characters etc

This fountain is beautiful to look at and we use it as a meeting point when meeting friends in the main square of Olomouc. Upon closer look you will see amazing detail in the sculptures...truly amazing. Right next to the fountain is a Turtle which we love to say to our friends "let's meet at the turtle". The turtle is...
