The Fountain of Union is found in the centre of Freedom Square, and as well as being the largest fountain in the country, it also has the most interesting history. The fountain was built during the communist era and was intended to represent unity. Somewhat ironically, the fountain is now out of commission - no water flows! - and is now more representative of the collapse of communism and then the separation of Czechoslovakia than anything it was ever originally intended for.

Located in the Namestie Slobody square, this fountain is massive. Due to a mechanical issue, the fountain isn't currently operating, but it still well worth a visit to see it and the square that surrounds it. This is the largest square in the city and is always bustling with activity.
