We loved Mariacka Street and kept gravitating back to it during our 4 days in Gdansk. It has just the most lovely, quaint cafes and bars. Some have outdoor seating, some are hidden away, but all were delightful. It has a good few little art and craft shops too which we found enchanting. The buildings themselves are gorgeous, so imposing... More

What to say? Lived in Europe for many, many years but keep coming back to this tiny little street. This street is one of the memories that will last your lifetime.

The houses itself is a great attraction. Along the front of the beautiful houses are amber shops where you can get amber cheaper than the Dulga Targ in old town. They give you 40% discount if you pay cash. The amber are attractive and make good gifts back home.

As you stand at the archway leading from the river at the bottom of Miriacka Street, you gaze in awe at the building frontages, all beautifully decorated in bright colours and set off with intricate ironmongery on the porches, stairways and basement steps. It winds its way up to the main church in Gdansk, with amber shops and stalls to... More

No cars. Just nice walk. Every few meters are small or bigger shops with amber jewelry. You can feel like time stopped at this place.

This street offers a huge number of amber shops within a very small area (the road is only about 200m long). There are also some shops selling glass and ceramics, all hand-made and perfect for unusual presents.

Here you really get the feeling of walking in the old town. Lovely old buildings, and local art for sale everywhere. Much to see, much to take in, much to buy.

Seen lots of amber here not as good as the old town inside some parts but a great street none the less and worth a visit it's also quite central and easy to find and one of the best places to view amber like I've already said

It is well worth taking a stroll down this street if you enjoy old buildings. There are also many stalls selling amber pieces. If you happen to be here when it is dark, you could imagine being in a Dickens novel.
