This is a sign of beauty, you can't have a town Centre without a Fountain, and they have really done it, by day it's a must have for my photo album and by night it's lit up and makes for a phenomenal sight, love this place, love this country and if the old boy who does the caricature pictures is...

It appears as though this is THE monument of Gdansk. Easily located along Ul Darga it is not hard to find and is perfectly placed in the middle of this long street. The fountain itself is nothing exceptional although still beautiful and worth a visit.

Nothing really special, but I guess every single tourist there takes at least one photo of it. I like more the fountain located next to Rossmann's shop just a short walk away from this one. The market place on the other hand is nice, but many of the restaurants are beyond average.

The fountain itself is lovely but the surrounding old town square is the real attraction. Colorful house fronts in the Dutch style. I was pleasantly surprised at the beauty downtown Gdansk holds

This fountain is no where near as impressive as other European fountains, but since it's right on the main square it's worth a quick stop for a photo or two. It is a well know landmark in the city and was very crowded on the summer's day we visited. There are many interesting historical sites in the area so you... More

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!
