We were in Sitka this past summer. It was everything we expected. Because we were on a cruise, there is never enough time. However, we did stop at the Russian American Company. Found many things that we purchased as gifts and mementos of our trip. This is the second time we have gone to Alaska and would recommend it to everyone who likes to travel.
The first Russian import shop in the state of Alaska, the Russian American Company has a huge collection of Russian handcrafts and art. Great gifts under $10 and under $20. and really fine items over $1,000. Even some original antique Russian icons. You have to see the collection of Russian lacquer boxes. Over 300. Some are simply amazing. It may be difficult to find if you don't know where to look, but the shop is definitely worth taking the elevator or even walking up to the second floor.
