The first part of this tour – amber gallery-museum. An introduction to the amber world of sorts. Since amber can be encountered in several parts of the world, including Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Austria, and others. Only the Baltic amber is widely valued for its healing powers, due to its unique chemical compounds, more exactly amber acid – succinate. For this more in depth encounter with amber – we will also offer a small degustation of amber bitter.
Amber in Lithuania is a source of national pride, and there is plenty of intricate amber products (i.e. an amber dress) – this part of the tour, however, is focused on jewelry. Hence, we shall visit a number of jeweler studios, where we could admire, or those who care for it, acquire unconventional amber pieces.
Halfway through the tour we shall invite you to try some amber beer, at which point we shall delve into amber tales, like the one about the sea goddess Jūratė amber castle destruction.
In the second part of the tour, more casual shopping awaits, namely souvenirs and cosmetics. Although gift shops are filled with amber trinkets, we shall show some more unconventional amber souvenirs, including amber kaleidoscope – which is quite spectacular.
Amber cosmetics and makeup has become quite popular amongst the Lithuanians in recent years – there is quite an interesting selection to match the interest – including amber powder, oils, soaps and creams. All with the aim of healing and revitalization. With revitalization in mind we shall end the tour in a SPA center, where your skin shall get an amber treat.
Side note – each year, Lithuania hosts an international amber exhibition called the Amber Trip. It is highly recommended.
