The Mermaid can be found in the middle of the Old Town Market Squareand even if it's not that big, it looks quite nice and imposing and it's an important city symbol, being present on the coat of arms as well.

The Mermaid Statue stands in the very centre of Old Town Square, surrounded by a fountain. There are various places to sit and watch the locals with children playing in the square.

Against all the odds this little mermaid survived all the bombing and is one of the only original statues left in Warsaw.

Lots of people are saying this is located on Old Town Square but I saw the monument today at the Metro stop at the Copernicus Science Center. So apparently there are numerous copies of the monument and I have a photo taken today 3.15.17 right by the Copernicus Science Center at the new metro stop for the line M2. The... More

There are lots of statues to see in Warsaw, this is a must see out of them. In the middle of the old town square it is a beautiful centre point.

It's not just a statue, More interesting to hear the backstory. Located in a center of the old city, When we visited in January it was surrounded by an ice rink. Several food stands and hot wine nearby
