This house is interesting for the three reasons:
- silver and amber jewelry, there are the most beautiful pieces of art I have seen in Gdansk, quality and artistic value of jewelry sold here is high
- the architecture of the front facade decorated with portal and numerous stone sculptures
- the Russian Center of Science and Culture (RONiK - Rosyjski Osrodek Nauki i Kultury) which runs own souvenir shop (CDs of Vysocki and Okudzawa) and the gallery of Russian painters.


What to buy: Amber goes well with silver in my opinion, so if you like it...
I would buy CDs of Vladimir Vysocki and Bulat Okudzava I like a lot and already have.


What to pay: Good deal: prices are mostly a bit more than average for real amber/silver jewelry but high quality must cost.
