WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE TOUR:

If there is something we Lithuanians are proud of, that is our long rich history. Even though we are a small country now there was a time when Lithuania was the largest country in Europe. It was part of a territory that used to include Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, Russia and Ukraine, and the rulers used to reside in… Trakai.

Nowadays, visiting Trakai is a popular day trip for both locals and tourists. The beautiful medieval castle is one of the symbols of Lithuania. It is the only castle in Eastern Europe that was built on an island and is surrounded by lakes. Despite the picturesque scenery, this little town is famous for its Karaites and Tatar communities that managed to preserve their culture and traditions to this day.

Venture outside Vilnius and join us for a relaxing and very enjoyable half a day trip. Find out why the Soviet government allowed the rebuild of Trakai castle which was a symbol of the glorious Lithuanian past, learn more about the Karaites and Tatars, find out why the Karaites’ houses must have 3 windows facing the street, taste kibinai and float around the castle on a pedal boat whilst enjoying the beautiful sights.
