Neptune's Fountain

Gdansk, Poland
4.8 / 5
The fountain is located on Dlugi Targ Square (translated from Polish, this name means “long market”). The sculptural composition is considered a symbol of Gdansk. She personifies the inextricable connection of the city with the sea. The fountain in the Flemish style was created by sculptor A. van der Blok in the XVII century. Later, decorative elements were added to the sculpture - a figured lattice and a bas-relief in the Rococo style, depicting sea monsters.
