The Singing Fountain
The Singing Fountain was built as part of reconstruction of the Maxim Gorky Promenade in 1982 to 1986. The design author was the architect Pavel Miksik. The first composition named “Music for the Fountain” was made by the music composer Petr Hapka who composed this work specifically for this purpose. Other compositions from works of W. A. Mozart, B. Smetana, A. Dvorak, F. Chopin, J.S. Bach, and others followed. The Fountain resounded for the first time on 30th April 1986.
