Really nice fountain, it's on the Main Street you can't miss it. In the evening/night they have put lights up, and it's even more pretty.

Located on the main street in the Old Town, Dluga, it is right next to the Town Hall you can't miss it. Nice little statue. It looks nice on a night when lit up

Situated in a central location, everyone who visits Gdansk will walk past it at some point. It is worth seeing both during daylight and at night when it is floodlit. It stands beside the Rathus and just over the road from one of the Tourist information offices.

In the heart of Gdansk, you can visit the statue of Poseidon (Neptun) and take a photo in front of it. It is just next to the Clock tower and in the middle of the way to the riverside. After here you can go to riverside to see the spectacular view.

The idea for and design of this fountain originated over 400 years ago (1606), it finally opened in 1633. It is located in front of the ornate Artus Court Manor and forms an integral part of the Dlugi Targ, the wider part of Ul Dluga. A very favorite place for tourists to pose for pictures and a nice ensemble together... More

This is a very popular fountain, in the heart of the old town. Everyone seems to enjoy taking pictures side by side with Neptune.

The Neptune Fountain is located in the Long Market, in front of the Artus Manor. Its creation was initiated by Mayor Bartłomiej Schachmann and the city council in 1633. The long street is itself historical place to visit

The Neptune's Fountain is one of the most known sightseeing points in Gdansk - it cannot be missed in the city centre: walking the mainstreet one hits it head on!!! Although it is so famous - once standing in front of it the sightseeing is done, i.e. it is not that big to spend an amount of time there. But... More
