This is a rather boring and underwhelming fountain, located in Wenceslas square, just next to the monument. It is so underwhelming, you will probably don't even know you'd miss it.

Wenceslas fountain is a big, nice fountain in one central square of the New Town of Prague. You can take a photo of it while you visit the square.

It was being remodeled when I was there. But it's probably a good thing, it had a dirty appearance, I hope they can make it look better.

Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town
