In summer a colorful music show is held in Kiev. Go straight to Maidan Nezalezhnosti to see it with your own eyes.
In the spring 2017 the fountains near Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) were improved and equipped with the mechanics. In the summer and until the end of September the fountains don`t only dance, but also sing.
Water from the large fountain soar up to the height of 35 meters and 6 small ones - up to 15 meters. The water is illuminated from beneath, painted in red, blue, green and other colors. At the same time classical music and modern tracks, selected by the kievans by voting, are playing. Vivaldi, Queen, Kvitka Tsisyk – everyone they can. All together it creates a spectacular show, which is completely free to watch in the evening twilight.
How to do?
1. Come to Maidan between 21:00 and 23:00 any day, except Monday.
2. You do not even have to seek them. You'll see them when you get out of the subway.
3. Sit down on the nearest bench and enjoy the show.
Tips and hints
If you want the fountains to "play" your favorite song, participate in voting for the songs that will sound in the next "season".
