Krizik Fountain, Prague

1.6
#410 of 745 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.

    Visited this event 4/08. Specifically on the site chose the time when fountain dances to the music of the great Russian composer Tchaikovsky Swan Lake Suite under (tops of classical Russian Ballet). Didn't notice that there was a footnote-fountains dancing with the troupe "ballet". Beautiful eternal music of Tchaikovsky, a very beautiful high quality game fountain and perhaps all. ... The artists came the so-called Ballet ... This base a quickie. Pulls more than performing at a local club. But not on "Swan Lake". No synchrony, who in the Woods who on firewood. n. hands and marking time, arstit ate pinned ballerina. Dance little Swans was the apotheosis of the "ballet". Sorry, it's a shame, not Ballet. I wish artists to come to St. Petersburg and visit to the Mariinsky Theatre, where they can see the true art of ballet at the highest level. Totally not worth the money and time. I do not recommend the submission of "Swan Lake" in this version

    Krizik fountain is located in the area north of Prague, a little away from the tourist area. Crossing one of the bridges and after a walk with the help of the map, because it is not marked, is a park where you also have to investigate some where the source is located. Finally when we find it, I was very happy because we arrived just in time to see the function of 20:00, which is where I wanted to see, which would put songs by Il Divo. Every day there are several performances to 20:00, 21:00, 22:00 and 23:00 sometimes also. I recommend going at night, because that is when most will be able to enjoy the lights of the photos. It was fully synchronized and found me a very nice experience, so much so that almost excited me lol. It is a very good choice for walking in the afternoon since on the return you can return by the Letná gardens. A good tour if you spare time and I like the music and this kind of show. Functions lasts about 40 minutes and in the square where the source is there is a lot room to enjoy it.
