Amazing atmosphere

This street is narrow with high buildings, in front of each there are few stairs and some flowers. It has amazing atmosphere.

Lovely little street, selling a variety of amber during the day. Not much open at night though, when we visited.

Absolutely worth visiting and getting unique memorabilia. Mariacka Street runs between famous Church of St Mary and Motlawa river. Mariacka Street is full of stunning shops offering 'gold of Baltic Sea' - amber. Some really rare pieces of amber can be seen in those shops, offering not only the high quality products but also certificate of authenticity. There are also... More

lots of activity on it - it's amazing how it's been restored post WWII. in the center of town. You'll probably end up on it even if you weren't looking for it

It is my favourite street in the Old Town. Must see if you're around. It is hidden behind St. Mary's Church. It is amazing all year long, but you should visit it off the season or in the night. You will not regret it!

Mariacka Street, located in historic Old Town, Gdansk is absolutely a must-see for visitors. Although Dluga Street in Old Town is significantly longer and has more stores and restaurants, Mariacka Street is a unique, one-block long cobblestone street that significantly adds to the character of Old Town. Along with several cafes and small eateries, there are small shops, a museum... More

Beautiful street with many wonderful old houses. If you visit Gdansk, you must see this place. I never thought, Poland has so nice place.

This tiny, cosy street is indescribable especially late evening or at night when it is already lit by lanterns, these magnificient stairs and glamour of Amber makes me think of the Middle Ages and earlier, when Romans created the Amber trail leading from Mediterranean Sea to Baltic, mainly in the vicinity of Gdansk. Really must see in Gdansk, every time... More

Architecture, amber shops and small restaurants. The perfect combination for a delicious old street.
