As Poland's chief historic port of course the natural choice for pride of place in the centre of the city is the Roman mythological god of the sea. Although Neptune's bronze is mounted atop a rather lovely rococo fountain placing him well above the heads of locals and tourists, he's utterly dwarfed under the soaring spire of the town hall....

Looks like a piece of old Medieval structure, brought rightaway to the street of a modern city! Lights installed very nicely, the statue looks magnificently especially in the twilight!

Fountains have Always attracted me in some way. Especially if it's an old one as it's nice to imagine how they've been able to make them in former Days and that their still work. I noticed that I could have easily missed the entire fountain in spite of it's size as there's so much to admire Walking along the Long... More

Dlugi Targ is a magnificent Square surrounded by elegant, ornate buildings. The Neptune Fountain is a very appropriate centrepiece and just compliments the elegance of the square perfectly. It makes a lovely photo op and there are lots of nice bars and restaurants to sit in beside it on all sides of the sqaure so you can enjoy it properly!

In my opinion, besides Gates on Dluga Street, this is one of the most astonishing parts of the Old Town, especially if you are into Roman mythology, I am not, I needed to google the Neptune's mythology, but I liked the fountain very much!

We could not go to Gdansk without going to the famous statue. It is the center of the old city. All the buildings and the entire area is beautiful.

Not too much you can say about a statue but well worth a few photographs as a memory it is situated right in the heart of the old town and outside some gorgeous old buildings

Interesting fountain but nearly missed as the Christmas tree was next to it similar to other fountains but a landmark on the street
