Directly in front of Bratislava’s National Theatre is Fontain Ganymed, a depiction of ancient mythology. One of the Old Town’s more ornate and decorator water features and found in a lovely and lively area of the city.

This is beautiful fountain. The sculpture is also beautiful but the children look unhappy. A good place to hangout.

This is a wonderful square, where locals and tourists mingle and enjoy the view. There are a number of kiosks on a side street selling local crafts.

If you're planning a walking tour of Bratislava, by all means include this fountain, but it's not impressive enough to go out of your way to see. I found the building behind it much more interesting, but the guidebooks offer virtually no information on it.

Title sums it up really. Decent, grand fountain gig complimenting the also impressive opera house. A worthy end to the boulevard leading to it

Designed in 1888 and located in the city center right in front of the opera house, this fountain is a work of art. Easy to get to for those with mobility issues.
