Discovery of Trakai Castle - one of the most beautiful castles in Europe and departureVilnius - Trakai - Vilnius
In the morning, after checking-out from the hotel, you will enjoy a sightseeing tour at Trakai Castle, one of the most beautiful castles in Europe, located only 28 km far from Vilnius.
Trakai, the old capital of Lithuania, is situated on a narrow 2 km long peninsula, between three lakes that have many different sized islands. The main attraction and adornment of the place is Trakai Castle, which belonged to the most famous ruler of Lithuania - Grand Duke Vytautas. You will reach the castle by walking through the bridge and at the same time enjoying the magnificent view of one of the most beautiful castles in Europe built on an island of a lake. During the visit to the castle you will get familiar with the castle’s history, its rulers and the rest of the site. Some people think that the castle is from a fairy tale, and at some point, they are right. The red brick structure, blue water of lake more Galve and the reminding of glory of the past really make the Lithuanians think that it was more a fantasy, than a reality. On the way back to Vilnius, you will see typical houses built by the Karaites who once were brought from far Crimean Peninsula to Lithuania by Grand Duke Vytautas. Just before leaving Trakai, don’t forget to take a picture with the castle in the background. This will be one of the most beautiful pictures you have ever taken!
In the evening, you will be transferred to Vilnius airport.
