The Old town of Trakai was shaped by Karaites – a local ethnic group from Crimean peninsula which has been living here since XIV c. - hear their story and try their local food “Kibinas” - oven baked pastries stuffed with meat or vegetables. The Castle. It is one of the most picturesque castles of Europe that lies between a few lakes on a tiny island. Build in XIV c by the grand dukes of Lithuania the castle reminds of the greatest battles and history to this date. You will cross a wooden bridge, see the castle from inside and outside and hear the story of Lithuanian royalties that resided there. After a historic tour in the castle you will enjoy the walk in Trakai town and have an authentic kibin lunch. Then we will drive you back to Vilnius.
I have been travelling since childhood. After university, I travelled in South America for a year when I ﬁnally realised how beautiful my homeland is: it is green, the air is fresh and the water is still. It is not crowded and overrated. And still, Baltic States is a bit oﬀ the beaten track with welcoming and open-minded people. I love this a lot. I was working as a marketer for 10 years. Now I work as a tour guide and co-owner of this travel company. We stand for creative tourism and experiences and we invite you to travel with us in the Baltics.
