Olomouc

The modern Arion Fountain is located near the corner of the town hall.

The subject of the sculptural decoration is the ancient legend of the poet, singer and kithara player Arion, who was rescued from the sea by a dolphin attracted by Arion's singing. The Arion Fountain was installed in 2002 during extensive reconstruction work on the Upper Square. The fountain is the work of Ivan Theimer, a native sculptor of Olomouc, and architect Angela Chiantelli.
