About Wells in Slovenia

The marble fountain in the upper part of Novo Mesto’s main square Glavni Trg is also known as the Kette Fountain, not only because the poet Dragotin Kette (1876–1899) was infatuated with a beautiful young woman who lived nearby, but also because some lines from Kette’s poem On the Square, written in 1897, are carved into the edge of the lower basin of the fountain. Designed by the architect Marjan Mušič (1904–1984), the fountain was erected in 1955. It consists of a lower polygonal basin and a smaller circular upper basin.
