"The best dark rye Lithuanian bread" Top 5 Page for this destination Kaunas Local Custom Tip by matcrazy1

I tasted traditional Lithuanian dark/black bread a few times during my two trips to Lithuania. And I must admit that this one served (bread and rolls) for breakfast in my Minotel Hotel belonged to the best :-). Add here some delicious sweet buns.

Lithuanian dark rye bread (rugine duona) is probably the oldest and surely basic Lithuanian food product. It's said that Lithuanian bread can stay fresh for up to 2-3 weeks when stored in a cool and dry place. Traditionally Lithuanian bread was served with a piece of white cheese, a slice of cucumber put on a slice of bread and with some honey spread on it.
