    Lithuanian beer: Svyturys

    Svyturys beer sign

    Svyturys is a popular beer brand especially on the Curonian Spit as it is brewed in nearby Klaipeda. The brewery was established in 1784 and produces various sorts of beer like wheat beer (Baltas), dark beer (Baltijos) and of course lager beer (Ekstra).

    Nowadays Svyturys is owned by Baltic Beverages Holding which is controlled by the Carlsberg breweries.

    On my trip through Lithuania I tried a few Lithuanian beers and I must admit that Svyturys Ekstra was among my favourites.

    10 Lithuanian Litas note

    Although Lithuania joined the European Union (EU) on the 1st of May 2004, they don't have the Euro as currency.

    Lithuania's currency is still the Litas. 1 Litas is divided into 100 Centai.

    You can get your money with your credit or debit card from cash points or just by exchanging your local money at one of the bureaux de change.

    NO SALLY, BUT GRAZINA

    No, this is not Sally selling sea shells on the seashore....it's Grazina in search of the Mystical Amber of many colours...
    Hey, what I did find is that the sand on this shore makes noise when you walk on it...I asked Grazina about the awesome sound and she starts to dance and says "It is all the amber under the sand mixed."

    Looking for Amber

    Grazina hunting for amber.

    Here we see The Baltic sea...the sands on the seashore...and Grazina looking for piece's of amber...
    The Baltic sea is famous with it's amber. The amber was formed during two millions years from resin and tar and has many forms, colours and mysterious fossills. I think it's a custom just to see if you can find one of these amber on shore...
    As Grazina was out looking, so I tried, and others that were on the beach that day...Oh yes, I did find one

    Wooden signs

    I don't actually know what you call these in English. They are very pretty and I have only seen them in Nida. There are some street signs as well, but these seem to show the wind direction.
