Shopping in Kaunas (July 2019)

Everything from pocket-sized souvenirs and Lithuanian designer items to perfume, vintage records and even carpets. Make sure you have enough space in your luggage!

For some travellers, shopping is a significant part of their holiday routine. Sounds familiar? Here’s an updated Kaunas checklist – just in time for summer sales. Everything from pocket-sized souvenirs and Lithuanian designer items to perfume, vintage records and even carpets. In fact, many of the boutiques we recommend are located in the Old Town of Kaunas, specifically on M. Valančiaus street. Make sure you have enough space in your luggage!

KNYGŲ MINISTERIJA
Laisvės al. 29

Interestingly enough, the bookstore is located in the premises of one of the first bookshops in Kaunas (opened in 1905). It’s amazing the new owners got to keep the vintage bookshelves – they’ve become the central element of the interior. Fresh coffee and vegan cakes are a great bonus to the wide selection of books!

CENTRINIS KNYGYNAS BOOKSTORE
Laisvės al. 81

Opened in the 60s, this is the longest-working bookstore in Kaunas at the moment, yet the foreign language section is limited. But you can feel the spirit of literature and nostalgia, so it’s worth to pop in just to appreciate the space.

ŽMONIŲ KNYGOS
M. Valančiaus g. 16

A place to bring, exchange, buy and even rent books. They’ve got a neat record selection, too. The name means “People’s Books”, in case you wonder.

MALLS

AKROPOLIS MALL
Karaliaus Mindaugo pr. 49

Everything you need and beyond, open daily from dusk till dawn. The shopping mission can be tiring at times, but there are plenty of refreshment options and the architectural decision of the mall kind of lets you imagine you’re outside. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants for you to chill out, as well as a cineplex and a SPA.

MEGA MALL
Islandijos pl. 32

The tallest marine aquarium in the Baltic States with a shark in it, a multiplex and the one of the two H&M’s in Kaunas. If you’re into these kinds of things, MEGA is worth a detour.

MOLAS
K. Baršausko g. 66A

A new tablet, pair of sneakers, a matching outfit, a bag full of healthy snacks and a new pair of glasses? Everything can be crossed out of your shopping list after a visit to this shopping mall very close to the city centre.

URMAS SHOPPING TOWN
Pramonės pr. 16

Urmas is the relict of the wild 90s (that was the time when our country embraced capitalism, and everyone became a merchant). The shopping town is much more civilised now, is home to dozens of shops and food options and boasts an extraordinary mural (60 m long). It took 3 years and 8 artists to finish the mural! A flea market buzzes there every Sunday.
