Linen and amber items are symbols of Lithuania
Both linen and amber are highly appreciated in Lithuania. Amber is our national symbol. Visit specialist amber stores or just street dealers and buy pure amber stones, delicate jewellery, various souvenir statues or entire paintings made from this so-called Lithuanian gold stone.
Linen and its products are also very popular among tourists. It is believed that blue-blossom flax used for the production of linen has been cultivated in the Lithuanian fields for about 4000 years. The durable, natural linen is used to make clothes that attract the attention of tourists. Those who buy them are always pleased as you will find nothing better to wear a hot summer day. Well, and for a gift you should bring home a linen apron, an authentic woven towel, a fun bag, a gift bag, a pot glove or other decorated apparel.
