Wow! I have no other words to use as soon as I think of Trakai Castle! It's simply divine! The ancient capital of the Grand Duke of Lithuania is located in Trakai, Lithuania, on an island of Lake Galve. The construction of the stone castle began at the beginning of the XIV century. Its history includes several destructions and reconstructions. You can read more about its importance here. The weather was perfect as the resort, plenty of sunshine and beauty. You can meet a lot of tourists here, and actually it was the first time that we heard portuguese while we were in the baltic.
The atmosphere is wonderful. Small crafts and souveniers shops, lakeside restaurants and a range for touring the lake. It is simply a must see destination! Besides visiting the castle museum, which is very well organized, with rooms with great exhibits about the history of "Little Marienburg", I advise you to eat at the restaurant As Klubas! The food here is delicious and the view is breathtaking!
