The world’s largest river light-and-musical Fountain on open water reservoirs and the reconstructed Embankment “Roshen” were opened on September 4, 2011. The “Fountain” is located in the course of the Southern Bug River and has a length of 140 meters and a jet height of 60 meters.
This socio-cultural and infrastructure project was fully implemented at the expense of the investment of the Petro Poroshenko Foundation. The total cost of the project Roshan and Fontana Embankment exceeds 70 million hryvnias.
The whole area of the promenade Roshen is almost in perfect condition. To the fountain 300 m, the total length of the reconstructed coastal zone of the Southern Bug in Vinnitsa is 700 m.
In order to install the fountain and carry out the reconstruction of the waterfront, work was carried out on the cleansing of the southern Bug river bed in the volume of 28,000 m3 of soil. Using a laser projector with a screen and a water-air mixture, distributed throughout the length of the fountain, allows you to display on the fountain video in 3-D format.
The uniqueness of the Roshen fountain is that it is not stationary, and floating, it is flooded for conservation in winter, being in the cold days under the ice. He is the largest in Europe among such.
When the Sun sets in, the fountain begins to sparkle without illumination – the oncoming light creates a natural illumination of water jets.
Due to the effect of full internal reflection, with the help of water-based lighters, the water cannons from the bottom to the top can change the color from yellow to blue.
We wish you a great time and enjoy the Roshen Fountain at the highest level!
