The World's Best Fountain Shows
There is something about water that can soothe the senses, calm the spirit, and ease the mind. Wordsmiths have used it to symbolise purity, renewal, and life. Perhaps this is why we enjoy looking at fountains - the sounds and movements of water seem to ease away our cares and worries, if only for a moment. It is for this reason that fountains are such popular ornaments for gardens and parks where people go to find solace.
Take a look at some of these links for guidance.
Over the years, fountains have caught on with advancements in technology. There are now what we call "fountain shows" where movements of the water are choreographed with lights and music. They can be truly awe-inspiring to watch. In fact, these shows draw hundreds of people, some of them from different parts of the world. One such fantastic fountain show is found in the United States, in Nevada. This gargantuan creation called "Fountains of Bellagio" is situated in a nine-acre manmade lake located in front of the Bellagio hotel. The fountains are comprised of over 1,200 nozzles of different types that make it possible to create varying water movements. These movements are then synchronized with more than 4,500 lights.
Another fabulous attraction is the Fuente Màgica de Montjuic (Magic Fountain of Montjuic). It was built around 1929 and has been entertaining crowds in Barcelona, Spain ever since. On certain months of the year, visitors are treated to 30-minute shows of water acrobatics using light and music. The impressive building of the Palau Nacional serves as an elegant backdrop, creating an air of romance and mystery. Finally, the Grand Musical Fountain Display in the Château of Versailles, France is not to be missed as well. Exquisitely-sculpted cherubs and Greek gods look on while waters dance to enchanting classical music - truly an experience fit for royalty.
