As the first fountain in the city, it quickly became Białystok’s people favourite so much that in about eight years after its creation, in 1900 it was decided to additionally decorate it. And so in the centre spot, on a platform a sculpture of three young men was put. They were symbols of music, agriculture and fishery. In years 1962-63 the fountain was moved to the wooded in 50’s square in front of city hall on western part of Kościuszki square. In 1996 a bold thief stole the sculpture that crowned the fountain and was never found.
