"Danube Fountain" Danubius Fountain - Danube Fountain Tip by Gypsystravels

  Danubis Fountain
by Gypsystravels

The Danube Fountain was designed by Miklos Ybl between 1880-83. The figures on the fountain are copies by Dezso Gyori of the original sculptures which were damaged in WW II by Bela Brestyansky and Leo Feszler.

A the top of the fountain is the figure of Danubis, who represents the Danube and the three other figures are of women symbolizing Hungary's three principle rivers after the Danube, the Tisza the Drava and the Szava.

The fountain is located in a park like setting behind St. Stephen's Basilica.
