Definitely the centre point of the old town square surrounded by people and pigeons at times. Just take you time be patient and you will go home with a beautiful photo of the statue and old town square in the background.

This is an impressive statue and very interesting as the mascot of warsw, especially when you take a tour to learn exactly what it is.

The mermaid is the symbol of the city. Statue right in the centre of the old town square. If wanting your photo taken expect to wait as everyone does it when visiting,

The Mermaid or Syrenka is an iconic monument is Warsaw. Everyone knows it, not everyone has seen it in real life. Definitely worthwhile.

She is in the middle of the Old Market square surrounded by a little fountain, you will not miss her. She is the symbol of Warsaw. She is represented on the coat of arms and you will find her on so many souvenirs as you...More

Very nice monument in the middle of Old Town with a most interesting legend that explains why a mermaid is a major symbol of a city not on the sea.

Easy to see the monument in the market square. When you go to see her, make sure you read the legend that goes along with it.

This is apparently a replica of the real fountain which can be found in the nearby museum and the mermaid symbol is visible across the city in various formats.
