Since fall is almost here, we decided to publish this summer post, until it’s too late 🙂
Vienna is a city with a lot of fountains and beautiful squares. The Hochstahlbrunnen (high jet fountain) featured in today’s post was built in 1873 on Schwarzenberg Square, which is the longest square in the city. This fountain marks the connection of Vienna’s first Alpine water supply.
Tap water in Vienna is of a high quality, since it comes from the mountains nearby the city. The Viennese are very proud of their water, so don’t be confused, since some cafes in the city center charge you for water from the tap.

The fountain partially obscures the heroic-style Soviet monument to the Red Army that commemorates the Russian liberation of Vienna. It was built in 1945, and back then known as Stalin’s Square.

Preostalo nam je još malo toplih dana, pa smo rešile da objavimo ovaj letnji post dok ne bude prekasno. 🙂
Beč je grad sa puno fontana i prelepih trgova. Mi vam danas predstavljamo verovatno najveću fontanu u gradu iz 1873.godine – Hochstrahlbrunnen. Nalazi se na Švarcenbergovom trgu, koji je najduži trg u gradu. Izgrađena je kao simbol prvog snabdevanja Beča vodom sa Alpa.
Beč inače ima izuzetno kvalitetnu vodu za piće, koja dolazi sa planina u blizini grada. Bečlije su veoma ponosni na kvalitet vode, te nemojte da vas zbuni što u pojedinim kafićima naplaćuju vodu sa česme.

Iza Hochstahlbrunnen fontane se nalazi i Spomenik Crvenoj Armiji, koji je podignut 1945 godine, kada su četiri savezničke sile držale grad podeljen u četiri okupacione zone. Švarcenbergplac je u to vreme bio u sastavu sovjetske zone, pa je dobio naziv Staljinov trg.
