This fountain was designed by the Bratislava-born V. Tilgner in 1888. It depicts figures from anciet mythology. The eagle is carrying the young man Ganymede to the top of Mount Olympus so that he can serve the Gods, on the order of the Goddess Dia. On the upper part of the middle basin there are sculptures of aquatic creatures whilst, lower down, the central column is surrounded by figures of children with fish from the river Danube.
