I like the statue.
Best place to visit in town!
Nothing special only a kind of monument
If you visit Gothenburg you need to see this.
Iconic statue in the heart of Gothenburg
The Great Poseidon is the all-powerful ruler of the sea. As the legend goes, if you bathe in his crystal waters by the light of the first Summer moon - and smile at the first stranger on The Avenue whom you meet - good tidings will come to you. (This good fortune will make itself known to you before the time of the next New Moon.)
It's in middle of a busy street. As a tourist attraction, it's touch and go. While the statue itself is beautiful, there is nothing other than clicking a few photographs that you can do there.
