Prague By Night - Križík’s Music Fountain
Highlights / General details
If you are fan of music and nice performances, this tour is here for you. We offer you an excellent introduction of an unforgettable Krizík’s Music Fountain, which was constructed at the beginning of the 20th century. It is a fantastic performance of water and light followed by music.
About the fountain:
In 1891, the citizens of Prague were albe to use their first electric tram track going from Letna to Stromovka, where the World Exhibition took place. The most notable exhibit at the Exposition was then an electrically Lit fountain, constructed by the „Czech Edison“ Frantisek Krizik. The present make up of the fountain has as its basis the reconstructed li3S Hp fountain design, which saw the light a hundered years later – in 1991.
In the 19th century, the bottom of the fountain plate was equipped with fifty multicolored reflectors. Today, the fountain has 1 300 of them, making the magical play of the light possible. The fountain pool with the dimension of 25 x 25 metres can hold up to 1650 cubic meters of water and the water circuits (composed of more than 2 kilometres of pipes) with almost 3,000 nozzles are managed by 49 water pumps.
The time and age has also brought about other technical novelties and refinements such as: the projection of images on the water screen, film projection on the water screen or laser effects. There is a new light park and the auditorium has perfect sounding thans to the fifty-five electro-acoustic transmitters.
The Lit Fountain became a unique and popular sensation of the Exposition 100 years ago. Today, one of the most notable structures of Prague´s Exhibition grounds remains one of the greatest tourist attractions of the hundred-spired Prague. An amphitheatre has grown up in the close vicinity of the fountain, which the agency annually fulfills with water and light shows amplified by the most amazing melodies of both the classical music, pop stars and unique original Czech art projects.
