This is situated just parallel to the bustle of the main street and runs down to the masses that walk the riverfront, but this street seems a million miles away from what is occurring around it. It is a street that will instantly take you back in history. The buildings are beautiful (as they are throughout the old town) but... More

When I fist time went to Gdansk I had an apartment by this little and cosy street. Please notice that it continues on the other side of the buildings! This is a quiet and peaceful street with some amber shops, a little supermarket (grocery store) and some bars, which are not open late so no drunken youngsters at night time!

Well worth a visit, even with an entrance fee. Didn't go all the way up as I have a fear of heights, but the say the view is stunning. Don't miss this.

Beautiful little side street with lots of Amber shops and a couple of nice places to eat. We had a lovely lunch with violins playing on the street below.

This is one of the prettiest if not the prettiest street in the old town. Beautiful brick townhouses with front facing courtyards and amber booths in front of every building give the tourist plenty to look at. It has a flea market vibe with all the jewelry booths, but the prices are not cheap. Amber is not my choice so... More

Very nice, I like different places history and archeology. Gdansk is very interesting, historical and fatal place in Europe history. Gdansk old city is in very good condition, a lot of hauses with white windows.

We stayed in Mariacka Street, very central and always busy with lots of excellent varied restaurants. Lots of street entertainers and Neptunes Fountain.

Be wary of fake and over priced amber. There is lots to choose from so you need to buy from a certified dealer.

Very nice spot and a great chance to buy some souvenirs (more or less useful:)). I can't imagine this street in winter, without all these crowds:)

Completely rebuilt after the WWII destruction, this pedestrianised street with cobblestone pavement is the epitome of beautiful, intimate architecture.
