Well, this is the most famous fountain in Bratislava. Maximilian II, the king of Hungary had it built in 1572 to provide a public water supply. Maximilian is portrayed as a knight in full armor, as he was considered the protector of the town. The fountain is a popular meeting place for many of the people in the town.

This iconic fountain can be found on the city's main square and a legend says that the statue on the fountain turns to the other side on New Year's Eve, to salute the heroes from the past that defended the city.

First to Review

Rollandova Fountain is probably the most well-known fountain in Bratislava. You'll find it in the Main Square of the Old Town. The figure is of Maximilian II the King of Royal Hungary, who ordered the fountain's construction to provide a water supply for the public. It has been modified and changed a lot since its original construction, but is still worth admiring. You'll often see loads of people hovering around it - and not just tourists, this is one of the main meeting points in the Old Town.

Γνωστό και ως σιντριβάνι Ρόλαντ, το σιντριβάνι του Μαξιμιλιανού κοσμεί την κεντρική πλατεία της παλιάς πόλης. Στην κορυφή του έχει ένα στρατιώτη, είναι κυκλικό και όταν το επισκεφτήκαμε τουλάχιστον δεν είχε νερό. Είναι περίτεχνα φτιαγμένο και συμπληρώνει ωραία την εικόνα της γραφικής πλατείας. Καθίσαμε για λίγο στο πεζούλι του για να ξεκουραστούμε και να βγάλουμε φωτογραφίες όλης της πλατείας και του παλιού συγκροτήματος κτιρίων.

La fotografatissima fontana al centro della piazza principale di Bratislava è il simbolo della città. Costruita nel lontano 1572, è stata restaurata e continua ad essere un luogo d'incontro nel quale ci si dà appuntamento per poi magari andare altrove. Se volete scattare fotografie senza che le solite folle oceaniche ve le rovinino, è consigliabile andarci al mattino presto. Visitare in alta stagione significa però doversi alzare all'alba per evitare la maggior parte dei turisti, ma è proprio al mattino che questa fontana dà il meglio di sè. Alla sera, non essendo ben illuminata, perde molto del suo fascino.
