Stayed near here. Very nice photo site. Was hidden during the 2nd world war and put back in 1954. Very popular site with tourists.

Apparently this is one of the city's most distinctive landmarks which is very close to st Mary's church and old town hall so you can see three attractions in one go. Smaller than you may think it would be. At night it us illuminated which adds a lovely glow to the area

The fountain is near the city center and very easy to visit. But as far as I am concerned, it is a fine and cute fountain but not spectacular or tremendous compared with other fountains in Europe, for example Fontana di Trevi in Rome. Since I am in Gdansk, it is good to take a look. But whether it is... More

Without its unquestionable historical significance to the city, it would not generate much interest for the casual visitor unless period bronzes were your thing. Take your photos for sure and then move along. There is a lot to see in the immediate vicinity.

Was really excited to see this, given its history. Maybe a little unfair, it was, after all the end of November. But the fountain was not in operation and worse, was surrounded with iron gates. Not what I was hoping for!

I know how important is the Baltic to Gdask. Thats why I can imagine how important the Neptun is. It is very symbolic, nice sculpture. You won't miss it while crossing the Old Town. Just have a look for a moment and continue you visit. Good spot as a meeting point!

Interesting fountain with the ugliest christmas tree in Europe (voted by someone?) next to it haha. The fountain is worth a visit for a photo or 2. Check out everything around it

I do like nice fountains due its complexity. I liked one in Austria one in Berlin and I do like this one in Gdansk. Nice sculptures around many details , worth to be seen in life.

Its a fountain like many others but the special thing is the place where it is. You find it in the old town on the square so if you see the complete picture its a beautiful thing to see.
