In Photos: 15 Magnificent City Water Fountains

 

 

 

 

Compiled by Adam Zettler & MetroMarks.com

The first recorded water fountains were connected to aquaducts and springs, and were built for practical purposes-public bathing and transportation of drinking water. During the last few hundred years water fountains have become more ornate, and beautifully designed fountains are now centrepieces of many public areas and parks in cities all over the world. We've collected some photos of a few of the most breathtaking and incredible!

Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're utilizing?
I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet
browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a honest price?
Kudos, I appreciate it!
