On my first visit to Warsaw, I happened to be there over a weekend. That was fortunate because the staff at the hostel I was staying at were taking people to see the Multimedia Fountain Park Show. I had no idea what to expect, but I decided to go along and find out for myself. I’m really glad I did because it was spectacular.
It’s this week’s Foto Friday because it is so cleverly done, it’s free, and it’s great to be outside with lots of other people on a beautiful evening. So, if you happen to be in Warsaw on a Friday or Saturday night, anytime from May to September, you can pop along.
The multimedia show is a light, water, and music extravaganza. Images are projected onto the fountain, so it looks as if there are dancers actually in the fountain, dancing to the music. Not only that, but the water moves to the music as well. It’s a real feel-good event that you can share with all the other people around you.
We sat on the top of a grassy bank and looked down onto the fountain, close to where the statue of Marie Skłodowska-Curie stands. However, you could watch from ground level, near or in the fountain park. The show only lasts about 15 minutes, so it’s a great start to an evening out and won’t make it a late one if you want to catch up on some sleep.
I love music and dance, especially outdoor performances, so it was the perfect show for me. I know there are similar multimedia shows in other places, so I will be on the hunt for them now, having seen this one in Warsaw. In May and September, the show starts at 21.00, but during the summer, it begins slightly later at 21.30.
If you are going to be in Warsaw one weekend, this is worth seeing, but get there early, so you find a good place to watch the show.
