Every evening, when it gets dark, the fountain shows dancing light and music shows, during which the jets of the fountain are illuminated in different colors and “dance” to the music, creating compositions in which many water jets either gracefully bend or are thrown sharply upwards.

Fountains can be viewed from two sides - from the western and eastern parts of the promenade. More about the fountain and the show with photos and videos…
