Shop for amber on Mariacka Street
Of all the lanes in Gdańsk’s maze-like old town, Mariacka Street is its most iconic – and certainly its most photogenic. This quaint, cobbled avenue is lined with the city’s most renowned amber jewellers. Here you’ll find everything from gorgeous pairs of golden earrings to miniature wooden trees with translucent leaves. Known locally as just Mariacka, the street – which connects St. Mary’s Basilica with the waterfront – is also home to cosy cafés and cool art galleries.
