Fantanile Craiovei - Fountains of Craiova

Updated: Mar 23

Fântâna muzicală - Musical fountain

The Musical fountain is a place that brings people together to enjoy a spectacle of classic music and water. It's one of the biggest attractions in the summer time, and it is quite spectacular. But if you visit it on Winter time, don't worry- it becomes an ice rink, and ice skating is a nice way to spend a part of your holiday, don't you think? It is situated right in front of the Mercur Centre, in the Mihai Viteazul Square.


Fantana muzicala e un loc care aduce oamenii impreuna pentru a se bucura de un spectacol al apei si al muzicii clasice. Este una dintre cele mai mari atractii ale Craiovei pe timp de vara, si este chiar spectaculoasa. Nu te ingrijora, insa, daca vizitezi orasul pe timp de iarna- fantana devine un patinoar, iar patinajul este un mod bun de a-ti petrece o parte din vacanta, nu crezi? Este situata in fata Centrului Comercial Mercur, in piața Mihai Viteazul.



 

Fantana Arteziana - Ciuperca The Mushroom

Pe locul vechii fantani arteziene “Ciuperca", in anul 2006, a fost construita actuala rotonda de apa, cu jocuri de inaltime si de lumini, de-a lungul bulevardului Stirbei Voda, la intersectia cu bulevardul 1 Mai. Fantana are 8 jeturi centrale, inalte pana la 20 de metri si 80 de jeturi pe margine, luminate seara in 15 culori si nuante, improspatand aerul si conferind intersectiei prospețime si luminozitate.


On the old spot of the artisanal fountain “The Mushroom “ , in 2006, there was built the actual fountain with heights and lights games, across the Stirbei Voda boulevard, at the intersection of it and the May 1st boulevard. The fountain has 8 central water jets, that measure up to 20 metres in height, and 80 marginal jets, which, at night, are illuminated in 15 colours and shades, freshening the air and offering the intersection a more festive and luminous look.



 

Fantana din Piata Unirii - The fountain from the Unity Square


In mijlocul pietei, pana in anii 80, a fost construita o fantana numita Fantana Rosie. Arhitectul Petre Falcan a proiectat forma actuală a fantanii. Gresia neagra adaugata îi oferă un plus de rafinament, iar jeturile de apa se inalta in joc de inaltimi si de lumini. Fântâna este situata in apropiere de vechea cladire a Universitatii de medicina, Cercul Militar Craiova si Liceul de arte Marin Sorescu.


In the middle of the Square, until the 80s, there was buit a fountain named “The Red Fountan". The Architect Petre Falcan projected a new form of the fountain, the actual one, the black marble offering it a more refined look, and the water jets go high, in a heights and lights game. Situated near the old building of the Medicine University, The Military Centre of Craiova and the Marin Sorescu Arts Highschool.


 

Fantana arteziana din English Park - The fountain from English Park


Situata in mijlocul parcului, proiectata in jurul anului 1970 de catre arhitectul francez Emile Pinard, fantana ne incanta pana in ziua de azi cu jocurile ei de apa si lumini, apa pastrand amintirea a tuturor etapelor prin care fantana a trecut de la infiintare pentru a ajunge la forma actuala.


Placed in the middle of the park, projected around the year 1970 by the French architect Emile Pinard, this fountain entertains us to this day with her water and lights games, the water keeping the memory of all the phases the fountain has been through since the inauguration to the present day intact.
