Not big, but a nice small park with some shade trees and a great water feature which really keeps you cool. The Russian monument is pretty impressive and worth seeing. Definitely somewhere to stop for rest of just sit and watch Austrian life go by.

Huge fountain in the center of Vienna. It is totally worth seeing if you are in the area. Another one of the beautiful monuments in the cities.

Quite big and nice fountain adjacent to the Soviet War Memorial. Fine place to relax. To all those who say it's not working: ofcourse it'll not work during winter months. Get your expectations right.

This is a dried up fountain, located next to the Soviet war memorial. While the memorial itself is lovely, the dried up fountain is not.

The bike is my favourite to tour the centre of Vienna. On a hot summer day I simply love to round the fountain hoping for cooling drops, on cold days I take the dry side. It started sprouting water like a geysir mor than hundred...More

We stumbled upon this magnificent fountain our first night in Vienna while walking a few blocks from our hotel toward the historic city. It's the focal point of Schwarzenberglplatz, which is a monument to military history. What we didn't realize the first night is that...More

dozen town palaces and churches such as St. Charles
Borromeo have added glamour to a neighbourhood known
for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns,
cafés. Wieden is also home to Naschmarkt, Vienna’s
largest street market. Many bohemian types have found
their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and
