Křížikova fontána (Křížík's Fountain)

Křížikova fontána (Křížík's Fountain) Review

Originally built for the Jubilee Industrial Exhibition of 1891, this pressurized-water and colored-light show really comes into its own on summer nights just after sunset. Occasionally, live music accompanies the spectacle of lights, but more often recorded programs of film music, classics, or rock play over the illuminated dancing waters. Shows normally start on the hour at 8 pm, 9 pm, and 10 pm, but check the website for the current schedule. An interesting note: František Křížík, who built the fountain, was a famous inventor of his day and a friend of Thomas Edison.
