The Neptune's Fountain (Fontanna Neptuna) is located at the Long Market in Gdańsk, Poland. The construction for the fountain began in 1606 but it was not until 1633 that it was finished. The project dealt with numerous issues including low water pressure. The statues atop the fountain are cast in bronze and weigh 650 kilograms. It has been repaired and modified over the years, and a full renovation was completed in 2012.
A popular Gdańsk legend suggests that Neptune was fed up with people throwing gold coins into the fountain. He struck his trident into the water and Goldwasser, the delicious liqueur that the city is famous for now, began to flow from the fountain.Places nearby:
