Siauliai's main east-west shopping boulevard is Vilniaus street (Vilniaus gatve). It was partly turned into a pedestrianised steet in 1975 when it was the first of its kind in Lithuania.
Vilniaus street is decorated with flowers, fountains and various sculptures, some of which represent the shops of the street (e.g. a book or a shoe sculpture).
Vilniaus street crosses the main north-south axis Tilzes street at a little square where a small clock tower can be found.
Walking in Siauliai central part I have found few bigger shopping places – medium size IKI shop, market place and supermarket “Saules miestas” (actually means “City of sun”). Saules miestas provides big variety of different shops from food to clothes; it houses some eating-places as well. It is possible to entrance directly to Siauliai bus station from this shop.
I found this fabulous colorful shop on Vilniaus pedestrian street kind of diagonally opposite the tourist office. The have a vast selection of sweets and chocolates for yourself or for a gift. Anyway, I couldn't resist when the shop was smiling at me!
What to buy: Sweet in all colours and shapes.
It's a medium size supermarket, located in the city center near the so called 'Bulvaras' (a long pedestrian alley). Nothing too special but if you wanna buy some food or other things for your daily life then Maxima is the best place.
What to buy: Food, drinks... also some clothing (not much) and many other stuff for daily life.
What to pay: not really much but usually as much as 20 EUR/USD
Such Spauda kiosks can be found all over Lithuania. Unfortunately, they only carry Lithuanian newspapers and magazines. But this is the place to buy your refills for your Lithuanian phone card.
