Cosmopolis Fountain

The musical piece Cosmopolis was specially created by the renowned Polish composer and author of film music Krzesimir Dębski to celebrate the opening of the fountain (22nd June 2008). The piece was performed by musicians of the Toruń Symphonic Orchestra and the Astrolabium Choir of the Toruń School of Banking. The light and water show was designed by the widely acknowledged lighting director Bogumił Palewicz.

In the following years, the program of the nocturnal  water, sound and light show was enriched by adding special renditions of themes from such films as Love Story and Gladiator. 

Since the first day of its operation the fountain has enjoyed great popularity among the  tourists and the inhabitants of the city. The night shows of water, light and music attract numerous audiences. The fountain has become the one most popular attractions of Toruń, almost on a par with Copernicus , gingerbreads and the architecture of the Old Town historical quarter. The Cosmopolis light and sound aquatic shows that take place from spring to autumn are an unforgettable experience, especially if combined with a nocturnal sightseeing tour of the Old Town with its illuminated architectural gems, unique atmosphere, scents of the summer or color palette of the autumn. One just cannot miss it…

It is worth mentioning that the idea of the fountain was conceived by a local artist Zbigniew Mikielewicz, the design prepared by FORMA Architectural Studio from Warsaw and the installation made by Gutkowski company from Leszno.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
