Palanga Amber Museum

Vytauto g. 17, Palanga 00135, Lithuania

Formerly one of the main centers of the Russian amber trade, the town of Palanga is home to the largest amber museum in the Baltics, with 4,500 artifacts on display in the grand 19th-century Tiškevičius Palace. Fifteen rooms house a number of treasures made from “Baltic gold,” including amber jewelry from the past 400 years and the Sun Stone, one of the largest pieces of amber in Europe, weighing 3,698 grams (8 pounds). The neo-Renaissance-style mansion and grounds, once owned by Count Feliksas Tiškevičius and now home to a botanical park, are also worth exploring.
