Undoubtedly, one of the cultural symbols of Plovdiv is the so-called Singing fountains. They are located in the Tsar – Simeon garden and occupy an area of 6 decares.
As their name suggests, they boast a rich music program, but what is even more impressive is that it is also combined with a spectacular light show.
The water jets of the fountains reach a height of 20 meters, and the melodies that sound during the program are works of famous classics.
This type of show was held for the first time on May 22, 2015, when the complex was officially opened.
During the summer season, the program starts at 9:30 p.m., as the daylight hours are longer then.
Plovdiv residents and guests can enjoy the singing fountains on several days of the week – Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
The show lasts 25 minutes and includes 5 musical compositions.
In winter, the attraction is also a great place, albeit only with multi-colored artistic lighting.
The garden in which the singing fountains are located has been declared a monument of park art.
Tsar – Simeon’s Garden, which was created by the Italian sculptor Arnaldo Dzocchi, is located right next to the Main Pedestrian Promenade.
Many monuments of Bulgarian spiritual leaders are preserved in it, and a number of contemporary sculptural compositions can be seen.
The fountains are located 8 minutes (650 m) from The Stay!
