Souvenirs in Lithuania

(4.2) marks: 5

The best things to bring home from Lithuania as souvenirs are amber and ceramics. The best places where you can buy them are big shops in the cities of Lithuania. The things made of amber are rather expensive, not less than in Latvia and Estonia.

The capital of Lithuanian ceramics is considered to be the city Kurshenie. You may buy there ceramic plates, cups, ash-trays and the figures of devils (there is a Museum of Devils in Kaunas). You may find lots of ceramic souvenirs during national Lithuanian holidays, for example Kazukas in March and Yonines in June.

Lithuanian cheese, bread and liqueur are very popular. The best Lithuanian bread you can buy in private shops. As for cheese it is sold in all the supermarkets and shops. The best kinds of cheese are “Svalya”, “Rokishkio”, “Tilzhey”.

The famous Lithuanian liqueurs are Dainavy, Palangy or Shokoladis. For those who like strong drinks “Zhalgiris” with 75% spirit will be a surprise.
