The well-known Moscow fountains are currently being improved as part of the “My District” programme, the official website of the Moscow Mayor reported.
The large fountain in the Tsaritsyno Museum-Reserve reaches 52 metres in diameter, the number of jets in it exceeds 800, and the water from them can hit up to 15 metres high. In the evening, special lighting turns on to give the fountain a more spectacular look, and music begins to sound closer to sunset.
The semi-dry fountain on Birzhevaya Square operates in several modes. In the daytime, it barely beats out of the ground, but in the evening the jets of water are illuminated with bright colours and rise several metres in height. All this is also accompanied by music.
The main fountain in Gorky Park was erected in the 1930s, and for the 1980 Olympics, it was decorated with lighting. The dynamic light fountain had pleased the guests for almost 40 years, and in 2018 they decided to carry out an overhaul. The renewed fountain resumed work in the spring of 2019. In the warm season, people come there in the evenings, when the water jets begin to sparkle with bright colours, dancing to classical compositions.
The dry fountain in the Khodynskoye Pole park is almost 800 square metres, and you can safely walk on it without fear of getting wet. More than 200 geysers work at the site. In the evening, the operating mode of the fountain changes, dynamic illumination and musical accompaniment are added to it, while the jets seem to bounce, leaving part of the water in the air or imitating waves.
The central fountain of the Zelenogradsky Victory Park structure looks like a waterfall and is a long staircase to the city pond, where there are six bowls, over which water cascades go down accompanied by bright colours.
