Dancing Fountains at the Canal - Εικόνα

The Dancing Fountains at the SNFCC Canal include 59 vertical water jets in line with the architectural design by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, together with 10 swiveling fountains, forming a powerful light, sound, and water display that captivate visitors day and night: Special LED lights are installed underwater.

The Dancing Fountains have constructed thanks to the initiative and funding of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
