Neptune's Fountain (Fontanna Neptuna), Gdansk
(4.3/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
A centerpiece for the city's main square, Neptune's Fountain (Fontanna Neptuna) serves as a meeting place for many locals because of its central location in Dluga Targ. Constructed in the mid-16th century, the bronze scupture of the sea god is so valuable to the city that it was dismantled before the German invasion and kept safe. The architecture around the attraction also makes a fine backdrop for photos.  For Neptune's Fountain (Fontanna Neptuna) and beyond, use our Gdansk vacation trip planner to get the most from your Gdansk vacation.

  • In the middle of the main old town street in Gdansk. Great view of the classic buildings and landmarks around it and many options for food and drinks in the restaurants on the street.
  • The fountains is the one of the most visited spots in old town. Good picture place, but in the season there are a lot of tourists.
  • Lively atmosphere all around. Quite qarm feeling. Beautiful square.
  • Worth checking out. Any time of the year. Nice photo opportunities.
  • Piękne miejsce :)
