The Akropolis Lithuanian Style.


It’s really just a huge shopping centre (biggest in the Baltic states) complete with cinemas, bowling alley, restaraunts, ice rinks, playgrounds etc etc. The largest shops are all owned by the one Lithuanian mega corporation (Vilniaus Prekyba) that seems to own most stuff in Lithuania, interestingly the centre itself is built on a prime location where a shopping centre was not supposed to be built… Well you can draw your own conclusions from this.

One of my favourite shops is the local ‘Double Coffee’, a coffee chain whos logo has some uncanny resemblances to Starbucks, at least it seems like that was their inspiration to me.

Double Coffee

Lithuanians generally don’t do the best coffee compared to Australia, which is unusual because everything else food related is at least two universes better in taste and costs less. This place is OK though.. Perhaps their logo could be ‘Like Starbucks. But double the taste and half the price’.. Would be close to the truth as well.
