Neptune's Fountain (Fontanna Neptuna), Gdansk

4.3
#9 of 33 in Sightseeing in Gdansk
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • This is an elegant and historic attraction on the main street in old town. I would not have gone out of my way simply to see it, but it is hard to miss if you're in old town and worth a visit.  more »
  • A wonderful Fountain in the Main Square (Old Town). Very picturesque and much photographed. The fountain was damaged during World War II but in 1927, the fountain was renovated.  more »

  • Nice tourist attraction. Quite a lot of people, but relaxed atmosphere. Good for walks.
  • Great fountain with a beautiful statue. Plenty of tourists crowding around it to take a picture. My friend insisted on getting a photo so we had to wait 5 minutes to get close enough to take one but it was worth it.
  • Very nice statue. But I believe in my heart that he is Poseidon 😂
  • It is a statue. So what can I say. When there are loads of tourists around taking a nice picture can be bit challenging.
  • Beautiful fountain in downtown Gdansk. Definitely make time to see if in the area.
