Fountain Challenge July: Stone Fountains


Baroque fountain, Olomouc, Czech Republic

Neptune Baroque fountain, Olomouc, Czech Republic

The city of Olomouc in the Czech Republic is home to six Baroque fountains, all of which are still in use. A Greek god is the subject of each fountain.  The Neptune fountain on Dolní Square is the first and the oldest of the six fountains and dates to 1683. Four sea horses rise from the water below Neptune. The sculptural group was carved by sculptor Michael Mandik and the basin was created by Olomouc stonemason Vaclav Schüller.
