Half day tour to Trakai

Detail description

Trakai is one of the oldest Lithuanian settlements spreading over unique glacial terrain and is the ancient capital of Lithuania. Trakai features moraine hills emerging from the water, like islands between numerous lakes.
Located 28 km from Vilnius, the ancient capital of Lithuania is now famous for its 15th -century insular castle housing an exhibition of archaeological findings from the castle and Trakai area and 17th-18th century applied arts. The museum exposition depicts the history of the Lithuanian Grand Dukes and Trakai region. But Trakai town is more than the castle; apart from that - there is yet another older castle on the peninsula of Lake Galve. No visitor should miss the heritage of Karaites, a Judaist sect brought by Grand Duke Vytautas from Crimea. There are some 300 Karaites left in this country, most of whom live in Trakai.
This tour begins and ends in Vilnius.
