The multimedia Fountain Park is a place of relaxation, a huge summer community center, the largest Warsaw cinema and a concert stage all in one. The park, located right on the bank of the Vistula River, in the area known as Podzamcze, has been an artistic, cultural and entertainment showcase of Warsaw since 2011. It is most popular on summer weekend evenings, when light performances, traditionally referring to Warsaw legends and watched by thousands of viewers, are displayed on the water curtains. In the summer, the fountain park provides refreshment from the heat, and in the evenings it undergoes a complete transformation, becoming the scenery of performances combining water ,lasers and sound. The presented shows have a multimedia character thanks to LED floodlights, lasers and a projector installed in the fountains. They make a show referring to the history and tradition of the capital city play out on a water screen made of for. Until now, the performances were reminiscent of the legends of Wars and Sawa, The Prince Bear o the Basilisk. Each show attracts thousands of viewers to the park.
The youngest one will enjoy the water playground located near the fountains, where on hot summer days you can splash in the water gushing from the ground.
The fountains are open from May to September. The show starts every day at 8:30 and ends at 22:30. At 16:00 there are water shows (without laser and music), and the multimedia shows awaited by everyone are held every Friday and Saturday in May, June and July at 21:30, in August at 21:00, and in September at 20:30.
The park is also worth visiting in winter – on weekends, the main fountain becomes a multicolored animated sculpture, and the shows are accompanied by festive music. In the vicinity of the park, it is worth paying attention to the bench of Wiliam Lindley, the designer of the sewage system in Warsaw, opened in 1886. It was on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the city’s water works that the fountain park was created.
