The Budapest musical fountain, known by the local name of Margitszigeti szökőkút, is one of the places of greatest appeal of the splendid Margaret Island, in the city of Budapest. Beautiful and evocative, has been recognized, with the neighbor Tower tank, UNESCO site.
The island is truly wonderful: an incredible green lung within the city, where you can spend a couple of hours, and even more, in relaxation and absolute peace. Inside the island, the wonderful Musical Fountain, makes it almost the owner, with its water jets that move to the rhythm of classical music. There are shows visible from morning to night; obviously, the most suggestive ones are after sunset, when the fountain is illuminated by constantly changing colors. The highlight is the latest 21 show: 00, where the complete music poster is played. And there is also a bit of Italy, with Andrea Bocelli's piece closing the show!
Obviously, who had been in Barcelona, will not have much difficulty in making similarities with the Magic Fountain of Montjuic; well, the two fountains are very similar, at least from the point of view of the show.
The fountain is located on the south side of the island Margaret Bridge, near the Athletic Center Margitszigeti Atlétikai Centrum Szigetklub.
