Roland Fountain, sometimes called Maximilian fountain in the main square of Old Town, Bratislava, Slovakia, central Europe. Its construction was ordered by Maximilian II, the king of Royal Hungary, in 1572 to provide a public water supply. The fountain is topped by a statue of Maximilian portrayed as a knight in full armour sculpted by master A. Lutringer. Its current appearance is probably far from its original look, since it has been modified and rebuilt several times.
