Musical dancing fountain will be set up near the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow by 2017. According to the city administration, the fountain will be built on the Moskva River on pontoons.

"Its design includes installation of musical equipment and machinery for the projection of laser patterns," the city administration report said. It is assumed that the laser images will include the capital’s attractions: the Kremlin, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the "Moscow City" towers. Light and music fountain will operate only in the evening.

The first water-music show will be available in 2017 with the renovated Luzhnetskaya Embankment. Works on its improvement and renewal has started this spring. The embankment, as well as the territory of the sports complex Luzhniki is renovated for the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia™.

The renovated embankment will have six sites for street workout, modern LED lights, benches and garbage cans. In addition, 80 trees and more than 15,000 shrubs will be planted along the embankment.

After the reconstruction, the square near the multi-functional swimming center will have a dry fountain, spouting directly from the surface of the bridge, and the eight existing fountains on the main avenue are planned for renovation.
