It's a sculpture /fountain of Neptune in Old Town. It's nice yes but as an attraction it's just ok. It's a meeting spot by the town hall ( which I think is the bigger attraction).

Nice situated by town hall and surrounded by restaurants ... the downside was the boxing ring placed near it ... deflected from the beauty of fountain.

It's a nice fountain...should be grande. The ornate wrought iron fence surrounding and The statue of Mercury behind it , I found more interesting.

A tourist magnet so if you want a nice picture of you by the fountain go early. The sun is in a much better position for a photo then too.

You can't visit Gdansk (or Tricity - Gdansk,Sopot,Gdynia) and not come to see Neptune's Fountain. It's unusual and simply stunning. Located in 1/3 of Dluga Street, next to stunning Old Town Hall (worth visiting by all means!) and in front of equally gorgeous Dwor Artusa. There are plenty of pub/coffee shops gardens next to the fountain so you can relax... More

The fountain is nice to look at, especially at night when it is lighted up. A lot of nice bars around.

we were told we had to go and see the Neptune Fountain as it is one of the most famous sights in Gdansk. Beautifully crafted fountain in the centre of the old town, surrounded by amazing buildings and architecture. Must see!

Neptun is one of very few things in the Old Town hat survived the massive destruction during the World War 2. The legend says that every 100 years the water in the fountain changes into vodka ;)
