The Old town of Trakai was shaped by Karaites – a local ethnic group from Crimean peninsula which has been living here since XIV c. Hear their story and try their local food “Kibinas” (empanada) - dough stuffed with meat or something else.

Trakai Castle. It is the most famous castle in Lithuania. It is 14th century Gothic and lies on an island. Reach it by crossing a few bridges and get inside. Have a picnic on the island afterwards, or use the free time to further enjoy the views and take the snapshots of beautiful lakes – You will be able to rent a rowboat or just sit by the lake.
