Long Description:
"Kašna puvodne stála na pražském korzu v Nových alejích, na dnešní Národní tríde, odkud byla z dopravních duvodu o nekolik metru posunuta na Jugmannovo námestí, kde ji nakreslil Vincenc Morstadt. Odtud se pozdeji odstehovala na Betlémské námestí, kde stávala do roku 1882, kdy byla opet prestehována do parku pred pražským Hlavním nádražím do Vrchlického sadu. Teprve v roce 1951 v souvislosti s úpravou prostranství pro verejné záchodky byla instalována na dnešní místo na Uhelném trhu, kde nahradila uhlírský domek a starší kamennou dvounádobovou kašnu, která zde stávala do roku 1894."

The fountain originally stood on the Prague Promenade at today's Národní trída, from where was for the transportation reasons a few meters shifted to Jugmannovo Square. From there, later moved to Bethlehem Square, where stood until 1882, when it was again moved to the park in front of Prague's main railway station in Vrchlického Sady. In 1951 was installed at the present location on the Coal Market, replaced the older stone fountain that stood here in 1894.
