It can be found on the Krakowskie Przedmiescie. It is made in the form of a goat, which is the main symbol of Lublin. Its image symbolizes prosperity and well-being. This cute fountain is made of bronze. To activate it, you need to press a special button. This secret sculpture is not known to all tourists because at first glance it is difficult to guess that you have a drinking fountain before you.
