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.
