The Robba Fountain (Slovene: Robbov vodnjak), since the first half of the 20th century also known as the Fountain of the Three Carniolan Rivers (Vodnjak treh kranjskih rek), is the fountain that stands in front of Ljubljana Town Hall at Town Square in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. It was originally made in 1751 by the Italian sculptor Francesco Robba and is one of the city's most recognisable symbols.
The fountain was commissioned to Francesco Robba in 1743, but was unveiled only in 1751. In its creation, Robba was inspired by Bernini's Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers) at Piazza Navona during a visit to Rome, but he modelled it after Fontana del Pantheon, the fountain by Filippo Barigioni at Piazza della Rotonda. In 2006, the original fountain was renovated and moved into the National Gallery, whereas at Town Square it has been replaced by a replica.

Beautiful baroque fountain in pedestrian zone in the city centre. Made by famuous italian sculptor Francesco Robba. The fountain is representing 3 great rivers in Slovenia. Fountain is situated directly in front of the city hall with many restaurants nearby. Unfortunately this is a copy, meanwhile the original is kept in a safe place - in Slovenian national gallery. This fountain is one of most famous landmarks and symbol of Ljubljana.

The Robba Fountain, one of Ljubljana's best known Baroque monuments, also known as The Fountain of Three Carniolan Rivers, stands at the edge of the Mestni trg square. It was created between 1743 and 1751 by the Venetian-born sculptor and architect Francesco Robba (1698-1757), who spent most of his life in Ljubljana and is considered to be the city's greatest Baroque master sculptor working in stone. The Robba Fountain is modelled on famous Roman fountains. The sculptures of three river gods adorning it are believed to represent three Carniolan rivers: the Sava, the Ljubljanica and the Krka. The Fountain's ground plan is shaped in the form of Ljubljana's ancient three-leaf town seal.

Not far from Ljubljana castle if you look up could probably see it. Also near other landmarks.

It is a robba fountain, in the city centre of Ljubljana. Next to it is a city Hall where they offer many excellent excursion around a town. Sometimes in the city Hall there are interesting exhibitions suitable also for families with kids. Next to the city Hall there are plenty of restaurants and bars.
