Apart from a couple of cafés, the whole street is filled with Amber shops. They're all a bit dear. There's a much nicer one for small stuff (earrings, pendants, rings) on Piwna. It looks best at night by streetlamp when the shops are closed and you can see the stone serpent waterspouts and building facades more clearly. It looks particularly... More

If you recall an old TV series from 1979 entitled "Buddenbrooks" based on Thomas Mann's novel of the same title, or the novel itself, you need to visit this place. It was the shooting location for the series, but to feel the spirit of 19th century high life, wander for a while from booth to booth selling amber jewelry and... More

Very nice place , reasonable prices. She shopped : while I enjoyed a beer, a perfect combination. Loved the relaxed ambience as I sat on the terrace. I could have stayed for a 2nd, but we moved on.

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!
