Mariacka Street (ulica Mariacka), Gdansk

4.6
#1 of 12 in Shopping in Gdansk
Known for the booths selling amber jewelry that line the street, Mariacka Street (ulica Mariacka) is also home to cultural curosities, such as a sculpture of a tightrope walker balancing high above shoppers' heads. The narrow, cobbled road with walk-up townhouses recalls the city's golden age. The Krzywy Domek building represents an architectural oddity, with warped walls that make it appear as if it is a mirage materializing on the horizon. Take your time exploring this narrow pedestrian street. Put Mariacka Street (ulica Mariacka) on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Gdansk online travel route planner .

  • I used it very liked. It was cool to sit there for coffee. Was the climate. Now there is only a crowd of tourists and commercialism. Amber less and more authentic. Large groups of German tourists with a guide to effectively block the passage. Can the night regains its charm, or in the morning, when tourists not yet will flood your bustle?
