One of Sochi's most visited attractions Editors' Note

The Singing Fountains are one of Sochi’s most beautiful monuments, and can be found in the city center at the corner of Navaginskaya and Kurortny Prospekt Streets, near the Sochi Trade Gallery.

The Singing Fountains encompass a small pool and dozens of water streams, while its complemented by special visual and sound systems to create an illusion of the water “singing” and “dancing” in rhythm. Note that the Singing Fountains are only switched on during the summer, and only then in the early evening, which is when the visual effects can be seen at their best. The fountains were built back in 1970, and were restored in 2009
