Zpívající fontána v Mariánských Lázních.

The Singing Fountain is one of Mariánské Lázně's unique wonders. It is a round pool with a diameter of 18 m featuring a 12-piece stone sculpture representing a flower in the center of its shallow bowl. The core of the flower is made of polished stainless steel. The fountain contains 10 intrinsic water jet systems with more than 250 water jets. The water gushes from the water jet in the center up to a height of 6 meters. The creator of this artwork is the architect Pavel Mikšík. The first music piece for the Singing Fountain was composed by the Czech composer Petr Hapka. Other compositions followed, namely works by Chopin, Mozart, Bach, Gounod, Smetana, Dvořák and others. The fountain's spellbinding tones resound at every odd hour and the compositions are repeated regularly. The Singing Fountain was first heard on the 30th of April 1986.
