Trakai castle, Karaites, Uzutrakio palace, Kibin tasting, Tatars


Trakai town is ancient capital of Lithuania. It is located 28 km west from Vilnius and it is one of the most popular resorts in Lithuania. There are 197 lakes in the Trakai region and 5 in the Trakai town. Island's castle is one of the most often visited historical-architectural monuments in Lithuania. Karaites are the small ethnic minority living in Trakai for about 600 years. Its interesting to get acquainted with their culture. You can taste national food of Karaites- kibin in one of the restaurants. I will kindly help to find a good restaurant for you.
We can also visit Uzutrakis palace with the beautiful English stile park near it. This tour is recommended to those tourists who like old architecture, history, culture and nature.
This price is for up to 3 pax, if you are bigger group please write a request and I will adapt the price.

Mvh,
