Brno, Jul 30, 2020 [updated on Jul 8, 2021] (BD) – Especially in hot weather, a drinking fountain is always a welcome sight, whether you need to quench your thirst, splash your face, or water your children or dogs. And in the time of coronavirus, being able to wash your hands regularly could save lives.
With this in mind, the City of Brno, in cooperation with local students, created an interactive map allowing the Brno public to quickly and easily locate 26 such fountains around the city. After clicking on the icon, map users will see a description of the location of the fountain, and a photo for orientation. The fountains themselves will always bear a sign marked “drinking water” in Czech and English.
The map was created as part of a project by the Students of Brno group, entitled “More drinking water points, and not just for sports”, and includes water fountains managed by city districts, the Brno Green Spaces organization, various foundations and private businesses.
