Stone Fountain (Kamenná kašna)

The Stone Fountain in Kutná HoraThe Gothic stone fountain on Rejsek Square was built in 1493 by architect Matěj Rejsek (who also worked on the Church of St. Barbara and is the author of Prague's Powder Tower). The twelve-sided fountain is unusually large, four meters tall, and originally had a hexagonal roof. It supplied water to Kutná Hora when local water supply was cut off due to silver mining in the area. Water was brought in through wooden pipes from a well four kilometers away. The fountain is lit up beautifully after dark.
