Fountain Extravaganza

The Multimedia Fountain Park, which opened with a grand splash by the Vistula River on I Dywizji Pancernej Square in the Podzamcze area in Warsaw, is claimed to be the biggest such fountain extravaganza in Europe. The complex of fountains, combining light, music and water fountain displays, is a visual treat both during the day and at night. Every weekend thousands of people come to watch the fountain display and kids love to splash in its mist.

The fountains consist of 367 water jets that shoot illuminated water to a height of 25 meters. The streams of water dance to the rhythm of music using synchronized water jets that can be illuminated in many ways. Additionally, the fountain produces a mist that makes a screen of fog on which laser and film projections are displayed.

In season 30-minute fountain displays are shown every Saturday after dusk. In September they start at 9 p.m. The concert shows include mainly classical music often played in a modern arrangement.

The fountain park has replaced a neglected pond and is in an area that has been used for years to organize mass entertainment events.

The fountain park on the Vistula riverbank next to the Old Town is part of a project to re-integrate the Vistula back into Warsaw. Work has started to repair the park’s walkways and improve the lighting system. The bicycle path on the stretch between Bole¶ć and Sanguszki streets has already been renovated.
