Friday Fountain Challenge: July

Stone fountains can be found in Prague too.


Kohl Fountain in the Second Courtyard of Prague Castle
Also called Lion Fountain due to its sculpted decoration. Originating from 1686, it is one of the oldest in Prague. The sandstone fountain used to be a substantial part of Prague Castle’s water system. It was one of the largest castle water reservoirs, used, among other purposes, to extinguish fires. The basin has a quatrefoil ground plan. Next to it is a well with an iron cage.  Source: Prague Fountains

  1. We loved Prague when we visited 10 years ago – must go back at some point! We stayed in the Old Town and walked everywhere – lovely old streets and buildings and the river with the castle overlooking it was lovely!

    • It’s a fairly easy city to walk around. We stayed slightly further out on the river and I used trams a lot to get into the city centre as they were very easy to use. I’d love to go back too in better weather (we were there in late September and it was cold and wet).

      • That’s good to know about the trams for the future as we didn’t need to use them on our last visit as we were staying so centrally. We were there during a heatwave (July 2006) and it was very hot and humid plus full of tourists but we still had a great time. I’d love to go back in winter though I probably would find it too cold in practice!

        • It is difficult to use a camera in the cold! My problem was the rain. Difficult to use a camera in the rain too, and it’s not much fun walking in it either. But it is a city worth returning to.

let's get chatting...
