A fountain in the city hall's main square in Bratislava.
Build in 1572 by Maxmilian II, king of Germany, Bohemia, Hungary and Croatia.
The often used name Roland for this fountain comes from a legend where the holy knight Roland had a horn by which he put his enemies to sleep. In turn the horn became popular with the Bratislava's mothers as Roland's horn also put their children to sleep. After Roland died the mothers asked the king (Maximilian) to build a fountain so that the burble of the fountain could pur their children again back to sleep.
