The Musical Fountain, located in front of the City Leisure Center, was dedicated in August 2008 during Independence Day celebrations. It used to be the best musical fountain in Luhansk region. Funds for this fountain were allocated both from the city budget and from sponsors. The fountain bowl was erected by a local organization, and the invited Chinese experts mounted the equipment. RGB-LEDs were used for highlighting the fountain, which made it possible to get any kind of light for any of the fountain’s 80 nozzles. A dozen of tunes of classical music were programmed, and they were perfectly synchronized with the dynamics of the jets and the light. The fountain could operate in an imaging mode to any sound in real time. A special computer program regulated the jets of water, the light and the music that accompanied them.

It was a truly royal gift to the beloved city from the city authorities and city businessmen. The fountain operated for three years. After the city government had changed in 2010, it became clear that permanent financial investments were necessary for maintenance and repair of the fountain (expert assessment, continuous cleaning, etc.). Since no dividends were expected, the municipality refused allotting any more financial means for it.

When the fountain ceased functioning, and it became clear that in the near future the city officials had no plans to put it into operation again, it was covered with a green tarpaulin for preservation, on the initiative of the City Department of Culture. The fountain has been staying idle for several years. It is not known whether the former gem of the city can be restored. In fact, everything should be started all over again, and complete replacement of the equipment, cables, and pumps is needed. If the fountain had operated constantly, this would not have happened. And now the expensive equipment can turn into a mere pile of metal.

Never mind. The city residents can only admire the former fountain sitting on a bench in front of the entrance to the City Leisure Center and remembering how good it used to be to come to the fountain and to enjoy being there…
