Many Eastern European cities seem to be fighting a losing battle with those dastardly plastic signs that leap out from every shop front. We're pleased to say that Vilnius's Old Town bucks the trend here.read more
The city may not be able to match Milan or Madrid as a shopping emporium, but there are some superb national treasures to look out for. Ladies will love the linen and amber - for news of these and many more intriguing goodies, have a surf through our shopping pages.
I am very happy with the linen dress I bought from this store while in Vilnius and would consider buying another online. I've had many compliments regarding this dress. The store staff were very helpful and approachable.
Last time when in Vilnius a visit to Maxima was a delightful experience. We have lived totally over 60 years in US and close to Los Angeles the last 30 years. Here I have not seen such a store with great selection of good fresh food, smoked meats, fish and all types of bakery products.
I walked in the store and introduced myself as an American, I was raised my Lithuanian parents, speak a tiny bit but understand 80% of the language. I went to look at a child's sweater and as soon as I touched it fell off the plastic hanger. Then two women starting watching everything I was doing. The one who put the sweater back on the hanger made rude comments about Americans. This is the most unfriendly store employees I have encountered in Lithuania. I wanted a handmade doll for my granddaughter, I asked if the had any and they showed me only one spot,but when I went to the back of the store they had more they weren't willing to show me, very unfriendly and has a bad attitude about Americans.
I really like a chocolate from this shop :)
Aš esu Škotijos vaikinas su lietuviu žmona, gyvenančia Lietuvoje. Mano ausys kraujuoja klausydamiesi jos skundžiasi apie baisią šalto produkteo kokybę, kurią ką tik turėjo pirmoji (ir paskutinė) "Judex" kompanija. Jis buvo įsigytas Elektrenu”Maxima” ir manote, kad tai turėtų būti "tiesiog kaip pas motina". Tiesą sakant, jei tai būtų kaip mėsos gaminimas, būtų geriau pasiimti ją lauke ir šaudyti. "Mamos Cepelinai" - aš rekomenduoju tik tuo atveju, jei bulvių sriubą norite supjaustyti su plūduriuojančiais mėsos gabalais arba jei per daug girtas per daug atsargiai. I am a Scottish guy with a Lithuanian wife living in Lithuania. My ears are bleeding from listening to her complaining about the terrible quality of the frozen product that we just had for the first (and last) time from a company called, “Judex”. It was bought in Elektrena Maxima, and from the packaging it implies it will be, "just like your mother made." In fact, if it was industrially produced rubbish. "Mother Cepelin" - I recommend it only if you want to eat potato soup with floating pieces of meat, or are too drunk too care.
Its okay place.
Has almost everything you could need (except for electrical plugs - strange omission) and the opening hours can't be any friendlier. Highly recommended.
Maybe products in Vilnius are fresh as I can read on other reviews, but do not go to Maxima in Klaipeda - meat colored with kidney blood, terrible quality and the vegetables 2. or 3. class - what rest of Europe will not eat :/ Sorry about the bad review, but its unfortunately the truth!
