At the center of a city square in Bratislava stands a gigantic relic of the Communist era. It’s called the Fountain of Union, and it’s the biggest fountain in all of Slovakia.
The fountain was built between 1979 and 1980. It was designed so that water would flow from an underground tunnel before bursting into the air, creating an impressive, yet peaceful spectacle. It takes the shape of the linden flower, a sacred plant in Slavic mythology.
