My dear friends, in these sunny July and such hot summer days, I would like to show you around some very fresh, even wet places in the city of Panagyurishte, which will cool you down, make you smile, and I must admit, will entertain you a lot.

Dear friends, I present to you the uniquely beautiful, enchantingly magical and so colorful water attractions in the city of Panagyurishte - the Panagyurishte fountains!

We will start this fresh and wet journey with the fountains of "Raina Knyaginya" square.

Where is "Raina Knyaginya" square in Panagyurishte?


Keep in mind something very important - as beautiful, fresh and pleasing to the eye during the daylight hours, each of the fountains presented by me today becomes many times more charming after night falls!

From the 20th of April square, we head to the city park.

A few surprises await us in the park. I'll start with the smaller one.

I guess you understand that I am purposefully continuing to raise the mood degrees!


Because I am yet to introduce you to the icing on the cake!


The evening is slowly falling over the city...


Darkness covers everything like a cloak...


From the first fountain in the city park we head to this extravaganza of color, magic, colors, music and water splashes!

You will see them in their full glory and splendor every Saturday during the summer, as well as on national holidays!



You will witness one of three musical programs – a whirlwind, dizzying dance in which musical notes intertwine, dazzling light, tons of color and thousands of splashes of water!


What?! You do not believe me?! Well see for yourself!


The music in this video is by the talented Bulgarian composer, arranger and pianist Mitko Shterev, presented in a unique, beautiful and so colorful and impactful-visual way.


Who disturbed me with a strange voice?

Who burns me in a cold sleep?

One monk, one woman.

One love, one fate.


They are before me - two fiery shadows.

They are in me - two pains crying.


Under the sun at a terrible time.

A monk - heart of iron.

A woman denied herself.

Condemned souls burn.


They are in front of me. They are in me.

Two fiery shadows. Two crying pains.


Who disturbed me with a strange voice?

Who burns me in a cold sleep?

One monk, one woman.

One love...one love...doomed.

I wish you a magical, nocturnal, cool, fresh and impressive walk!
