Multimedia Fountain Roshen (also known as Vinnytsia Fountain “Roshen”) is the largest floating fountain in Europe – and the only one in Ukraine.  It is located on the Southern Buh river near Festivalny Isle.  The attraction constantly ranks first on TripAdvisor, out of 46 attractions in the Ukrainian city.

swan lake Emotion Media FactoryRalph Douw, CEO of Emotion Media Factory, designed and developed the project which cost 37 million UAH (around 1.5 million Euros).   28,000 cubic metres of the riverbed had to be cleared in order to install the fountain equipment.  The fountain uses running river water and has a ‘hibernating’ technology which allows it to sink under the ice of the Southern Buh during the winter.
