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! Odprez sie przy kawie/piwie w jednym... More

An archway takes you through to this historic street. Very narrow, cosy feel and marvellous buildings on both sides. Make sure you see the ornate old porches and dragon water spouts - look up,or you will miss endless beauty in the gable ends of houses. Many amber sellers and small, intimate restaurants.

We had reservations at an apartment in Old Town Gdansk and ended up in the heart of the Old Town. The apartment was a comfortable 2 bedrooms, modern kitchen, and washer. Couldn't have picked a better location if I knew the area before making my booking

It was nice to see a lot of shops selling amber jewelry. But don't expect this road as the long street. It is just a short street, about 500m

Lined with bars, cafes and restaurants was lovely to stroll down the cobbled streets. Laid back and old world like.

The street oozes charm and is particularly wonderful at night. Have been coming back for many years and will be back for sure.

This street is right off the quay and exclusively sells amber at the foot of old "brownstone" type homes. Most of these homes are the stores for the street-side vendors and are very interesting to see on their own merit. Also, there is more amber to be found on this street than anywhere we went in Poland.

This is the most famous amber street. You could spend forever here. I make jewelry so for me, I was in Heaven. Nice little places to stop for coffee etc. Just wonderful.

We'll worth a visit, lovely little cobbled street with local shops and art galleries, and a couple of restaurants.
