Description

Sure you’ve heard of the Fountain of Neptune in Florence, Italy, and a smaller replica in Seville, Spain, but did you know that Gdansk had its very own statue smack in the middle of its town center? 

Yep, a bronze statue of the Roman god of the sea has found its way to Poland and is pretty impressive to look at, too.  Touted as one of Gdansk’s most recognizable symbols, it is located in the center of the Dlugi Targ (the Long Market), it was first erected in 1549 before being made a fountain in 1633.  The fountain was temporarily dismantled and hidden during World War II and later restored in 1954 after spending several years in hiding.

Almost every Pole that has ever visited the city has a picture in front of the Neptune’s Fountain statue, and with good reason why.  The wonderful, color blast of buildings on Dlugi Targ make for an excellent backdrop.  Definitely worth a stop by, but just don’t forget your camera.
