This street is extremely beautiful and coziest street in Gdansk for sure. In the war it was completely destroyed, but I think that rebuilt is amazing. It is just near the back of the cathedral, don't miss it! You can buy a souvenir here (though, a bit expensive).

A quaint little street, with cobbles. The traders are on both sides of the pedestrianised street and have their displays of amber jewellery displayed in cabinets. It is difficult to believe Gdansk was flattened to rubble at the end of WWII. The street has been sympathetically restored and its hard to know what is new and what is original.

This street leaves impression of a medieval port street, especially at night. Now there are lots of caffe, restaurant and souvenirs. At the end of the street there is a huge Mariachka's Cathedral which is worth visitting as well.

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
