Water, lights, music and action! Fountain season starts

Summer is in the air in Moscow, with 300 hundred fountains being switched on in the capital.

The main ceremony took place in the restored museum and park at Tsaritsino, home to one of the capital’s biggest fountains. Moscow's Mayor, Yury Luzhkov, switched on a new light and musical fountain.

The sparkling jets were accompanied by Tchaikovsky‘s famous Flower Waltz from the Nutcracker ballet.

Muscovites will be able to enjoy the fountain season till October.
