The Mermaid is a symbol of Warsaw and a prominent statue stands on the Old Town Square. The area around the mermaid is home to an ice rink and Christmas Market during the winter months. Worth a short visit and some selfies.

This warms my heart to see the statue. I have heard many stories of the mermaid. Ask the locals. Poles never forget about being Poles, and are proud!

This really a lovely statue. Embrace all that the square has to offer, but I do recommend going in the mornings before all the tourists arrive.

We stopped at this attraction during our walking tour to learn about the story of the mermaid and take its picture. This also the right place to take pictures of the fountains and beautiful facades of the buildings surrounding the Market Square.

The little mermaid statue is located in the middle of the main square. You can not miss it. It is very symbolic for the locals and surrounded by serval ancient building and restaurants and shops of souvenirs... it is. A highly touristic area

Had no idea what it meant, made a few photos and then went on to read the whole story behind the statue. Quite interesting. Maybe grab a walking tour in the old town to be more aware of your surroundings and the stories behind.

When I heard mermaid my mind went nautical. But when we found the monument it turns out that she’s in full battle mode. Shield, sword and all.

Mermaid / Syrenka is a part of the old town square (square). If you are going with a guided tour of the area (which is recommended) you will hear the legend ;-)
