The Fountain of Arethusa
FOUNTAIN OF ARETHUSA
Fountains were once the main source of drinking water almost in every city. They stood in every open space: some were simple timber-framed reservoirs, while others were decorated with classical or biblical sculptures or natural motifs.
During the Renaissance and Baroque periods in particular, rich citizens and noblemen would compete to see who could create the most ostentatiously decorated fountain and build splendid waterworks.
There are more than two thousand fountains in Rome.
Paris has more than two hundred fountains.
Czech novelist Ignát Hermann indicates that more than 400 fountains existed in Prague in the 19th century, both public and private.
There are many legends and stories related to fountains. And, of course, there are secret messages hidden in some of these fountains. Finding them will guide you to our contest prize.
We discovered these stories and devised an intriguing contest full of challenging tasks. Be the fastest to solve them and win the prize of 1000 Euros.
All you need is a good mindset, concentration and a good team.
