  GUNTARAS - SHOP OF AMBER
by matcrazy1
 
 

This nice looking souvenir/gift store/shop on my picture was rather expensive (as for Lithuania) but... a must see esp. that it was located at main street of the old town. Well, they rather didn't sell kitschy stuff so it's my recommendation for visitors looking for a gift from Vilnius.

What to buy: Jewelry made of Baltic amber ("gintaras") from bracelets to watches... if you like amber. You can find amber with insects inside but they were more expensive. Beautiful ceramics, old-fashionable lamps, pictures etc., rather not kitschy stuff there.

What to pay: Expensive as for Lithuania, inexpensive as for EU country.


Address: Didzioji gatve, LT-2001 Vilnius, Lithuania
Directions: From the Cathedral Square walk a few minutes southwards Pilies gatve (Castle Street) to triangle square at its end, continue walk southwards (Didzioji gatve) - shop on the right.
