World of Amber

Poland, like much of the Baltic coast, is famous for its amber, also known as "Baltic Gold", and you will see several shops selling it around town. The many capable craftsmen you'll see here work the material into different designs, creating necklaces, rings, decorations and much more. World of Amber is the only Polish jewellery to host a cinema, showing a movie about the historic amber route of Krakow.


Krakow is a good place to pick up antiques, artwork and jewellery. Amber jewellery is particularly abundant in markets and shops across the city, and the Jewish quarter of Kazmierz has begun to attract a lot of arty boutiques and unique jewellery stores. One of the main streets for clothes shopping is Florianska Street, and a number of large shopping malls stocking international brands have appeared in the city.
