If you want to buy some Amber, this is the place for you. A quaint cobbled street with lots of small shops, beautifully lit up at night

This street is basically where amber jewelry is sold, nothing special, nor eye catching. Most of it seems quite similar, table after table of almost identical amber jewelry. If you walk real slow and look at each shop, it will take about 40 minutes tops.

Very nice, quiet street, not far from the mainstreet. For me there were too much amber shops and sellers. Nothing else.....

The nicest small romantic street you could image, with old, historical buildings and many restaurants. We had a very nice meal here and sat on the terrace, lovely. In daytime there are a lot of amber shops worth visiting.

If you can stay on this street for awesome old world feel at Gotyk House. Avoid Maisto Anielow across the river. DO visit the main market street few streets over and the crane.

This is the most charming and romantic street in the whole town - especially when the sun is just setting down... a true gem! Sit down in one of the cafes, enjoy a nice drink and enjoy a spot of people watching :) Czarujaca i romantyczna ulica, piekna w promieniach zachodzacego slonca... prawdziwy skarb! Odprez sie przy kawie/piwie w jednym... More

An archway takes you through to this historic street. Very narrow, cosy feel and marvellous buildings on both sides. Make sure you see the ornate old porches and dragon water spouts - look up,or you will miss endless beauty in the gable ends of houses. Many amber sellers and small, intimate restaurants.

We had reservations at an apartment in Old Town Gdansk and ended up in the heart of the Old Town. The apartment was a comfortable 2 bedrooms, modern kitchen, and washer. Couldn't have picked a better location if I knew the area before making my booking

It was nice to see a lot of shops selling amber jewelry. But don't expect this road as the long street. It is just a short street, about 500m

Lined with bars, cafes and restaurants was lovely to stroll down the cobbled streets. Laid back and old world like.
