"Warsaw's mermaid monument" Syrenka - Mermaid Tip by Raimix

Syrenka - Mermaid, Warsaw: 26 reviews and 43 photos


Warsaw mermaid is a symbol of this city and it is depicted on coat of arms. Actually mermaid monument was already made in 1855, but this one is not original, in such way trying to save real one from vandalism.

The mermaid is a part of Warsaw’s legendary story. The mermaid swam from the sea and stayed here to rest, but later was imprisoned by fishermen. As in stories about Arabic genies, mermaid asked to release her and promised to fulfill wishes (in this case - to defend town).

Address: Rynek Starego Miasta.
Directions: In the middle of old town.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
