This is found at the very top of Wenceslas Square in Prague. Due to major construction on the National Museum it is turned off as the construction program is due to complete in November 2018. The statue of King Wenceslas is still available nearby.

The fountain is OK but it is ready for a bit of refurbishment. It’s very dark and dingy, I’m sure to could be cleaned. Still it part of the history and you should go and have a look.

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.

At the top of Wenceslas Square or Vaclavske Namesti is the National Museum, and in front of it is the fountain. Unfortunately when we were there the entire museum was covered over including the statutes, covered by wooden boxes, and the fountain, with a domed...More
