At the side of ul. Zwycięstwa we can see a fountain with the "Dancing Fauns" sculpture dating back to 1928. The figurines were placed on a cylindrical, stone pedestal with a carved decoration depicting a motiff of ram heads and festoons. Hans Dammann is the author of the pedestal. The faun casts were probably made by a local sculptor, Peter Lipp.

A legend says that the sculpture depicts conflicted mayors of three neighbouring cities: Gliwice, Zabrze and Bytom, who could not reach an agreement regarding the planned (in pre-war times) unification of the cities into a single entity – Tripolis.
