PUBLIC DRINKING FOUNTAINS

In Ljubljana drinking water is accessible to all.

WATER FROM FOUNTAINS

Ljubljana natural fountain water freshens you up in summer - put it in a bottle or cool your face. 

UNTREATED WATER

Since 2008 we have installed a number of drinking fountains in Ljubljana. Residents and visitors can find them in the centre and on the green outskirts of the city. The drinking water from the fountains flows from Ljubljana's central water supply system, and its quality is periodically tested. Water from the fountains is safe to drink.

EXPANDING THE NETWORK

We plan to expand the network of fountains.

THE FOUNTAINS CARRY A SYMBOLIC MESSAGE 

The public drinking fountains are not just a decorative adornment to the city, but a reminder that we drink good water in Ljubljana. The fountains carry a message: Water is a natural asset which must be accessible to all. Protect it and respect it.
