The 'Long Street' had lots of beautiful amber shops, with helpful assistants. We went into perhaps six shops and all were equally pleasant. Always check to ensure the business has a certificate of authenticity for the amber - don't be fooled by the imitations in the markets on the side alleys. Be careful with parking also.

It is another beautiful Polish city, well kept, clean and tidy with nice looking buildings. There are all the usual tourist shops and loads of great food places. If like me you love the Polish cuisine then you will enjoy a visit here.

Like most old parts of any city it's the architecture that is the star. Lovely buildings, some very quirky. Plenty of places to stop off at for a refreshment break or some food. It is surprisingly quiet and that just adds to it's charm.

There was just nothing there! We walked arounf for over one hour, and finaly went into tourist info to ask where the people and shops and life was, but she looked me straight in the eyes and with a voice like ice cold water said "this is it".
