How to Spend a Perfect Day in Trakai

How to Spend a Perfect Day in Trakai, Trakai, Lithuania (B)

A small town of Trakai, just a short drive from Vilnius, the capital, is one of the main tourist attractions in Lithuania.

Local and foreign visitors come to see its impressive Medieval Castle located right in the middle of the Galvės lake, as well as enjoy the nature and some local ethnic food.

So here are some suggestions of places to see and things to do for those, who are visiting Trakai for the first time.

To start with – a few scheduling suggestions. If your schedule is flexible, try to avoid the wet and dreary late autumn and early spring months (November, March, April) when the trees are bare and the snow is melting or has not come yet.

Winter months, on the other hand, can be a beautiful time to visit if you like snow and don’t mind the cold.

If at all possible, try to time your trip in the middle of the week, to avoid weekend crowds – it does become really busy, especially on nice days and in the summer.

Take a very comfortable train from Vilnius railway station and about 30-40minutes later you will get off in Trakai. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
