Everybody knows that teddy bears love honey. However, the teddy bears of Vilnius prefer chocolate! If you do not believe me, come and meet them yourself. They are nice and surely put a smile on your face. The little Teddy bears are waiting for you in lively Gediminas avenue, close to the Cathedral. And yes, they are eating chocolate.
The cute statuettes of three Teddy bears eating chocolate are part of the entrance decoration to the shoe store „Danija”. During years of World War I this building was a paradise of sweets, candies, chocolate, cakes and tarts. Yes, it was a candy shop. Thus, Teddy bears eating chocolate were a perfect decoration for it.
Nowadays the candy shop is gone, but the Teddy bears with their chocolate are still there. The statuettes are small, so it is easy to walk by without noticing them. But take a moment and stop by the shoe store “Danija” to see the Teddies.
