A golden duck conjured up from lights and sprayed water can be seen in the Multimedia Fountain Park from May. After a two-year break, Warsaw's favourite show returns.

Golden duck

For several years now, Warsaw legends have inspired multimedia shows. After stories about mermaids, Prince Bear, Wars and Sawa, the time has come for the legend of the Golden Duck. This illuminating story about what is most important in life - love or wealth - will be accompanied by the music of Kora and the band Maanam. We will hear, among others, "Exceptionally Cold May", "Cicadas in the Cyclades", and "Don't Chase Me, Because I'm Losing My Breath".

The inaugural performances are scheduled for this Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (1, 2, 3 May) at 9.30 p.m. Subsequent versions will take place on Fridays and Saturdays, with the hours changing - 9.30 p.m. will remain until the end of July, in August it will be 9.00 p.m. and in September 8.30 p.m.

Admission to the shows is free. They are best admired from the Vistula escarpment. During the first show - on 1 May - there will be a specially marked area for people with disabilities. It will be equipped with a wheelchair platform. Blind and visually impaired persons will benefit from the audio description, and deaf persons will be provided with a hearing loop.

Fountain Park

The Multimedia Fountain Park was opened in 2011 in Warsaw's Podzamcze district, at the foot of the New Town. It is one of the most important tourist attractions in Warsaw. It is located in Podzamcze on the square of the Polish Army’s 1st Armoured Division between Boleść, Wybrzeże Gdańskie, Sanguszki and Rybaki streets in the New Town.

More than a million spectators watch unique shows during the five-month season (from the beginning of May to the end of September). Podzamcze has become a place for meetings, recreation, and relaxation and has become a permanent part of the capital city's artistic, cultural, and entertainment architecture. The Multimedia Fountain Park will offer a new gastronomic offer from this season.
