The Mermaid Monument in Warsaw (Old Town)


The Mermaid Monument is one of the most recognizable Warsaw monuments and is often considered one of the city's symbols. Set in the middle of the Warsaw Old Town Square in 1855, the monument was made by Konstanty Hegel and cast in the factory of Karol Juliusz Minter. It depicts the Mermaid as a melusine emerging from the foaming waves, with a spirally twisted tail, holding a sword in her raised right hand and a shield in her left hand. The monument was the first monument of the Warsaw coat of arms.
