Malé náměstí

The oldest fountain in Prague stands in Malé náměstí (Little Square), not far from the more famous Old Town Square. What we see today was substantially remodelled from 1876 to 1878 by the master of the neo-gothic, Josef Mocker.

However, it retains two original features: a magnificent wrought-iron grille from 1560, and a splendid Bohemian lion finial dating from some time in the 17th century.

Behind the structure can be seen the neo-renaissance facade (1889) of the former pharmacy ‘U Zlaté Koruny’ (The Golden Crown).
