Fountains of Kaposvár

Kaposvár is the city of flowers and also the city of fountains.

There are not many places in the city where the soothing and pleasant swash of the fountains could not be heard. As the result of the deliberate prettifying and designing of the city, today the evolving of a more significant square or roundabout is nearly unimaginable without the design of a special, playful or even an imposing fountain.
