If you are a fan of music and nice performances, this tour is here for you. This is an excellent introduction to the 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.
In 1891, the citizens of Prague were able 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 Frantisek Krizík, the "Czech Edison."
In the 19th century, the bottom of the fountain plate was equipped with fifty multicolored reflectors. Today, the fountain has around 1, 300, making the magical play of lights possible. 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 acoustics, thanks to the fifty-five electro-acoustic transmitters.
The Light Fountain became a unique and popular sensation at the Exposition one hundred years ago. Today, one of the most notable structures of Prague's exhibition grounds remains one of the greatest attractions of the hundred-spired Prague. An amphitheater was built close to the fountain, and it is consistently filled with water and light shows, amplified by the most amazing melodies such as classical music, pop star hits and unique original Czech art projects.
