In this Thesis we study the connection between hydrodynamics and gravity by meansof the AdS/CFT correspondence. We review general construction of hydrodynamics andits applications to heavy-ion collisions. We find a novel effect due to quantum anomalies, which manifest themselves in the macroscopic hydrodynamic regime. Moreover, we find a description of hydrodynamic system with one conserved current using gauge/gravityduality. Special attention is put to the boost-invariant regime of hydrodynamics. We obtain explicit solutions of the dual system and perform a detailed regularity analysis. Finally, we investigate meson properties in the boost-invariant plasma. In particular, we study the influence of dynamical temperature and viscosity on meson spectra in theplasma.
