This fountain is in front of the Town Hall so you can't miss it. Unfortunately the entire Rynek was under reconstruction when we visited in March. There was no water in it in March.

It is one of four fountains in each corner of the market square depicting characters from Roman mythology. Dating back to 1766, this beautiful sandstone fountain by Augustine Schöps depicts the Roman goddess of grain and agriculture being dramatically abducted by the God of the Underworld.

This fountain is most popular, but it is a part of composition of other fountains on the square. Old. Beautiful.

Visited the fountain and market during our travels in Poland. Poznan has so much history to visit. The building surrounding the fountain with all the bright colors eludes happiness. Every get a chance to visit the market with all the vendors in the square... You will have the time of your life.

Puzzled about why this sculpture is popular. Depicted is the abduction of Proserpina (Persephone) by Pluto (Hades) who forced her to marry him. Greek mythology was popular during the last part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The sculpture dates from 1776. Some 150 years earlier an Italian Baroque artist called Bernini made another (sculpture) version with the same theme. It can still be seen in the Villa Borghese in Rome. The most striking difference is that in Poznan Proserpina looks rather benevolent, while in Rome she resists and shows aversion towards her kidnapper. In Poznan Pluto looks almost good natured, while in Rome he shows hardly any emotion (no mercy). In either case, abduction of a woman for whatever purpose is not a reason for celebration.

This is one of the famous fountain on the old market place made by Augustine Schöps and was erected in 1776. It depicts the abduction of Proserpine by Pluto, the Greek mythology ruler of the underworld..
There are 4 fountains around the greek mythology and they are all different.
If you have time please go around this old market place

A beautiful fountain, worth seeing. This well-known Poznań monument of small architecture is the oldest fountain (from 1776) currently standing in the Old Market Square . Fountain is made of sandstone and is located on the north-eastern corner of the Old Market in front of the Town Hall . A rococo sculpture referring to mythology, made in 1766 by Augustine Schöps, depicts the scene of the kidnapping of Proserpina. Four bas-reliefs on the walls of the pool symbolize the elements: fire, air, water and earth. The fountain is the only of the four objects of this type standing on the Poznań market, surrounded by a high metal fence.Very beautiful place.
