Was ihr unternehmen werdet

Trakai is the cradle of Lithuanian statehood, headquarters of the Grand Dukes, and the historic capital of Lithuania.

Only 40min drive outside of Vilnius there is a town called Trakai, considered the de facto medieval Lithuanian capital because Duke Vytautas the Great preferred the natural landscape punctuated by azure lakes and lush islands over Vilnius. Trakai Castle is a red brick, fairy-tale like fortress built by Vytautas and his father in the 14-15th centuries to fend off Germanic knights.
After our visit to the main attraction - the Trakai Island Castle - we'll take a serene walk along the lakeshore, across a bridge, and back to the mainland for further discoveries. We'll venture further to town to explore and learn more about the Karaim people. The story of this unique ethnic group started in Lithuania in the 14th century and is still flourishing today, therefore in no way can be separated from the story of Trakai. An absolute must do when in Trakai - trying traditional Karaim cuisine specialties, such as kibinai (savoury meat pastries).

Our plan:
- Private Trakai Island Castle Tour
- Walk around Trakai town
- Karaim street & Kenesa (from the outside)
- Free time for lunch and souvenir shopping

I was born and raised in the capital city of Lithuania - Vilnius, which is still my hometown to this day. I have been working as a guide/tour leader for nearly 10 years in the Baltic region - Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Ukraine & Russia. I am a historian, who is also interested in architecture, art and travel. Also a passionate cook and used to run an Italian restaurant of my own in Vilnius Old town, therefore culinary history and local cuisines is another topic that interests me to a great extent. When not sharing my love for my own country, - my greatest pleasure is to travel the world!

I am so proud to be one of the local guides in Vilnius as I have the possibility to learn and discover new things along with my travellers, to share experiences and action-packed days with no time to be bored!
