Why locals love it

They continue the blacksmith tradition which people tend to be not so familiar with nowadays. Many of their works have traditional Lithuanian motifs.

Why you should visit it

You wouldn't typically expect to see a blacksmith workshop in the middle of a modern city. In downtown Vilnius however you are able to watch iron being shaped into things like jewellery, candlestick holders, horseshoes etc. It's a great way to familiarise yourself with the old art and there's also a souvenir shop.

Special tip

Ask them to explain what the motifs mean and what Lithuanian roots they have.
