You'll also find stalls on Vincas Kudirka Square and Gediminas Avenue- the main shopping street. You'll find beautiful artisan gifts, local delicacies and mulled wine. some of the stalls follow the traditional wooden chalet design, but you'll also find fantastic glass igloos dotted around the place- some of which serve as cafes!
There's also a Christmas Train, decked out in garlands and decorations, which travels around the city over the season. The city's ice-skating rink is open all winter, and is a great place to spend a couple of fun hours.
