Vienna’s latest water fountain, costing €1.8 million, has sparked controversy for its appearance, labeled by some as the ugliest in Europe or even globally.

This fountain, created by the avant-garde group Gelitin to mark 150 years of Vienna’s modern water system, has been criticized for its design despite intentions to symbolize communal water responsibility. Despite its high cost and the mixed reception, local authorities defend its unique design as fostering unity. The unveiling attracted significant backlash, particularly on social media, with critics questioning the investment and aesthetic choices involved.
