Photographer's Note

The  Palanga Amber Museum is near the Baltic Sea in Palanga, Lithuania. It is housed in the restored 19th-century Tiškevičiai Palace and is surrounded by the Palanga Botanical Garden. The museum's collection of amber comprises about 28,000 pieces, of which about 15,000 contain inclusions of insects, spiders, or plants.About 4,500 pieces of amber are exhibited; many of these are items of artwork and jewelry.

The Baltic Sea coast has been a source of Eurasian amber trade since prehistoric times . Amber artifacts were discovered in the 19th century - these artifacts unfortunately disappeared during the 20th century. ] Lithuanian mythology, folklore, and art have long associations with amber. It still washes up on the beaches nearby. Amber is beautiful in various forms of jewelry. Great place to visit
