Located in front of the drama theater, the fountain has a golden statue of Neptune on top of a three tiered square pedestal. Neptune is depicted in a standing pose holding his trident with a fish under one of his feet. The pedestal has mermaids in all the four corners at the lowest level, sea-shells at the mid level and cherubs at the top level. It is a beautiful fountain reminiscent of those found in Europe and a great photo spot.

Since 2010 Batumi, as well has a fountain of Neptune following the example of cities like Florence, Rome, Madrid and less exotic places like Poznan. Perhaps surprisingly Batumi has chosen a copy of the one in Bologna. A nude Neptune sculpted in 1567 by a famous Flemish artist named Jean de Boulogne also known as Giambologna who spent most of his life working for the wealthy Medici family. It is a fantastic piece of art in mannerist style, but very much influenced by Michelangelo's effort to revitalize the examples of classical antiquity. The original in Bologna is a bronze and desperately in need of a make-over. The Batumi Neptune is gold-plated since 2011, perhaps not the best material for a sculpture of this kind. However, the features of Neptune, god of fresh water and the sea are not jeopardized. Water is spraying from the breasts of four mermaids and from the mouths of fish held by putti. A great sight.
