About the Magical Fountain show

The Magical Fountainis an evening open-air show performed on a beautiful venue of the Křižík’s Light Fountain. This 75min. long show is loosely inspired by the life and vision of famous Czech inventor František Křižík.

The entire performance is based on the principles of the new circus. So it doesn’t matter what language you speak. Every visitor will enjoy the evening!

The producer is a Czech artistic groupPyroterra. The spectacular open-air show combines state-of-the-art technological effects with the monumental work of the Czech inventor František Křižík. An elemental combination of fire and water together with the electrifying performances of light dancers and fire acrobats.

Magical FountainreturnsKřižík Fountain to cultural life and events with the ambition to be recognized around the world.

Křižík’s light fountain is a timeless work of the Czech inventor František Křižík, first presented to the public on May 24, 1891.. Today’s appearance is based on the reconstruction in 1991. The magical play of lights is possible thanks to 1,300 different lights. One of the most remarkable sites of the Výstaviště Praha Holešovice is still amongst the popular attractions of the capital city. In the previous years, it was closed due to technical problems.

The Czech visionary was born in 1847 to a poor family in Pošumaví. Despite the lack of finances, he was accepted to study technology in Prague thanks to his talent. He celebrated a huge success with an improved arched lamp, thanks to which he lit up the city Písek and Jindřichův Hradec. He founded the first municipal power plant on the Czech land in Žižkov.
In 1891, he supplied complete lighting for the Jubilee Provincial Exhibition in Prague and ceremoniously opened the sensation of his time – the tram line in Letná.. However, his immortal glory was secured by a light fountain at the Výstaviště Praha Holešovice, first presented on the same occasion.


The performance takes place in any weather (due to its difficulty, it is not possible to move the performance).
In case of rain, two thirds of the venue are under the roof. Raincoats are recommended.

  • the performance can start and take place in bad weather (e.g. in the rain)
  • the performance can be interrupted (even repeatedly) and then continued
