Fountains can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people, and almost all of them are quite the sites to see. There's the comedic Mannekin Pis in Brussels, Belgium, which depicts a young boy urinating into a basin bowl and on special occasions serves as a beer fountain. Take the Swarovski Fountain in Innsbruck, Austria, which is the centerpiece of the Swarovski Kristallwelton theme park and is a large, grass-covered head with water flowing elegantly from its mouth. Or how about the Magic Fountain of Monjuic in Barcelona, Spain, which hosts an average of thousands of tourists each and every night for a show of lights, music and performance. So many fountains, so many purposes.
