Neptune's Fountain (Fontanna Neptuna), Gdansk

(4.4/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • With Neptune best see the evening when it is not surrounded by a crowd of tourists who want to take a photo with him. The fountain is located close to the main town hall, access to the weapons of the low fence. Same in the photos looks best on the background of the Town Hall, though more often is the backdrop for memorable photos. If you have any hope for the atmospheric photographs of Neptune in the lead role, remember that sometimes is dressed in a Santa hat or scarf Football Club, every bit of the spoils the effect of photos.

  • Easy to spot when walking around the old town. I wish I had a little more information on it as I am sure it has a great story behind it.  more »
  • The fountain is located in the heart of the old town and looks cute. Next to it is almost always possible to see tourists.

  • 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 :)
