Krizik Fountain, Prague

1.5
#100 of 155 in Sightseeing in Prague
Fountain Tourist Spot
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. Use our Prague travel itinerary maker to add Krizik Fountain and other attractions to your Prague vacation plans.

  • For the first time in my life was at that show. Very nicely. Specially chose the day when there will be "Carmen" by Bizet, because love this music. However, it was disappointed that on the official site of fountains published a promotional video in which filmed as ballet dancers dance on the specially provided sites, and in fact there were no dancers. There was only music and dancing fountains. Well, not "Bizet" at all, but excerpts from various ballets, all without dancers. Yes, it was beautiful, but completely not what show in advertising. Did not expect such a frank catch. Arrived at the hotel, went to the official site of the Krzhizhikovyh fountains, specially revised video, reread the text, all true artists ballet dance at this fountain, srezhissirovany their outputs on this site, on the circles and staircases. It is written that performs Prague Ballet Theatre under the direction of Jiří Pokorný. Interestingly, someone managed to go on view, where ballet dancers really involved? Would gladly have everything again, only wants to advance still understand that buy a ticket. And, indeed, as written in some reviews, it is difficult to find, where is the fountain, there is practically no pointers. Too good to care about it.

  • Once upon a time we were at a presentation in Barcelona and the impression left on the rest of your life. Apparently, has since seen many things and surprise us all more complicated. The popularity of this show does not enjoy. Our guide with many years of experience to learn about the existence of these fountains from us. Near from the Centre, in an uninhabited place. If you haven't seen this ever, it is worth to go.

  • This fountain is overpriced considering you can get a better show in Barcelona and Dubai for free. To add to it the arena is in disrepair and the location is quite far away from anything else in Pragu...  more »

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
