Krizik Fountain, Prague

2.8
#347 of 1,231 in Things to do in Prague
Krizik Fountain offers a spectacle of music, water, lights, and 1,300 multicolored reflectors. František Křižík--known as the Czech version of Thomas Edison--built the electric fountain for the World Exhibition in 1891. One hundred years later, the fountain was reconstructed and technically enhanced. Performances change regularly. Look for projections of images or films on the water screen, a water ballet of moving water, and laser effects. The music varies from works by classical artists, such as Smetana, Dvorak, and Mozart, to hits by more contemporary icons, such as Freddie Mercury and Vangelis. You can watch the show from an amphitheater close to the fountain. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Prague trip simple and quick.

  • 22 a dance performance in the water fountain with lights and fire dancers. The dancers move by the different spaces and staircases of the source. Impressive coordination of music, waters dancing vary intensity and color. A nice evening stroll as an option in this extraordinary city.

  • A stunning fountain with different shows every hour. A lot of history, and reasonable prices. From 2018, however, this event is closed. Regrettable, for it was an experience.

  • In the suburbs, but it's quite good, although it is difficult to find a large building complex. Earlier in the summer, I was there and it was beautiful, now in October, we went and had few visitors, to retreat to rendetlenséggel, but in summer, it is strongly recommended.

  • Today at 8 pm. No info about end of season, just nothing happened here today. Okay, ive seen on their www its closed Forever. Edit: nobody can verify info and put on main its closed Forever...
  • The show is well worth the price. A change of pace for the evening.
  • Go there only after sunset! You will have 10 times better visual effects and you will see 10 times less things that require maintenance or doesn't work. The water was not change and fountains were not cleaned probably since the place was build.... it looks sad :(
  • 26.8.17 Went with the whole family on :Cajkovskij - Swan Lake - ballet at 21:00 Very beautiful! There are a couple of nuances: 1. Go only when it's dark!!!!! 2. Should come in advance due to the big queues.
  • Hi my visit to the krizikova fountain was ... uhm fine... because i was at 20:00. Go at night lightshow,balerine sometimes or cut scene from movies. Really don t go when isn't dark sky. But it was fine that was good. One tip: They want paid with € but it is so expensive CZK is better .

Where to stay in Prague

For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings.
