IMPORTANT NOTICE: As of OCTOBER 2023, the Fountain Show is paused until spring. See you in 2024!
Bucharest Fountain Show will entertain the inhabitants of Bucharest again in 2023. This year, the Water Symphony show changes to the music of ABBA, Cher, Ricky Martin and many others, plus classic ballads in the fountains’ colourful lights enhanced by the summer night’s romance.
After more than two-year hiatus due to the extended pandemic crisis, the artesian fountains in Unirii Square, one of Bucharest’s most important points of attraction, reopened for the summer of 2023. With a beautiful multimedia show, the Water Symphony, as it is called, impresses visitors and Bucharest’s citizens.
Apa Nova, the Capital’s water and sewerage provider, has invested more than 7 million euros in restoring the fountains in Unirii Square, helping transform the area into an urban attraction for both Bucharest residents and tourists.
The Urban Fountains in Piaţa Unirii will offer visitors multimedia shows from Friday until Sunday until the beginning of October. They have varied themes, and the selected songs complete the magic the water and lights show created. In May and August, the show will start at 9:00 p.m (8:30 PM – 10:30 PM); In June and July, they will return at 9:30 p.m (9:00 PM – 11:00 PM); and in September and October, they will begin at 8:00 p.m (7:30 PM – 9:30 PM). The shows last about 45 minutes, and it’s free to attend.
The artesian fountains in Bucharest are the first urban fountains in Europe to benefit from cutting-edge water entertainment equipment and technology. Some elements are unique in Europe, such as the entirely digitally monitored system, allowing control of any individual unit of the 44 independent fountains. Unirii Boulevard is nearly 1.4 kilometres long in total.
The fountains in Unirii Square, built in the late 1980s, were recognized, approved, and published in 2019 by the World Record Academy as the Longest String of Synchronized Choreographic Fountains in the World, with a water surface of 16,200 m2 and are unique by their arrangement in the centre of the Capital.
