Druskininkai Shopping: 8 reviews and 7 photos

One woman sold these amber necklaces, on my picture from the table put at Laisves gatve (street).

What to buy: Simple and cheap jewelry made of Baltic amber ("gintaras") from bracelets to necklaces... if you like amber. It was not the best choice and the stones were of low quality when I looked closer.
Later on, during my Lithuanian trip, I found
amber with insects inside but they were much more expensive, at least in Vilnius.

What to pay: Generally low and not very fixed prices. Try to bargain (preferably in... Lithuanian or Russian). Good luck :-). First price for amber necklaces was only 10 (€ 3.01; US$ 3.63; 13.82 Polish zl) or 12 Lt.

Address: Laisves gatve, Druskininkai, Lithuania
Directions: From a sqaure where is Russian Orthodox church: walk a street eastwards (Laisves gatve). Map here
