Deixe que a paisagem da Lituânia passe por sua janela enquanto você viaja 40 minutos para Trakai, situada a 18 milhas (28 km) a oeste de Vilnius. Saiba mais sobre o Grão-Ducado da Lituânia, a Batalha de Grunwald e do Grande Vytautas (1392-1430).
I am enjoying Vilnius very much but it was nice to glimpse a little bit more of Lithuania. We were lucky enough to go on a beautiful autumn day when the colours of trees around the lake at Trakai were spectacular.It is a wonderful spot., and the village houses different and interesting from any other country I've visited. Essentially though this is a reconstructed castle and though well done, for me there was little atmosphere inside the castle itself. The guide was informative and pleasant, the journey straightforward. The only slight feedback I would offer that would be easy to fix was more of a welcome from the driver and the guide when we individually got on the bus. A smile and a hello doesn't take much, but none of that happened until the last pickup and we were all on board. A little thing but it would have started the trip in a more friendly and relaxed fashion. Incidentally this trip could have been easily booked in Vilnius at the same price as online. Having said that it is nice to have something planned in advance, and I would recommend the trip.
Really lovely half day trip to Trakai which is well worth a visit. Our guide was knowledgeable and gave us a good tour of Trakai. If I were to go again I'd probably spend less time inside the castle and more time for example taking a boat around the islands / relaxing by the shore. Top pick for a sunny day!
