What You'll Do
  • Discover the beautiful lakeside town of Trakai
  • Explore the peninsula Trakai Castle, set on its own island in Lake Galvė
  • Learn about the Karaites ethnic group that settled in Trakai
Overview
Discover the beautiful lakeside town of Trakai on an easy 4-hour guided tour from Vilnius, and learn about its development as the former capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. See the stunning Peninsula Castle and Gothic style monuments of the old town.
What to Expect
Enjoy an amazing half-day tour of Trakai, traveling by air-conditioned minibus from the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, with an English-speaking guide.

Located just 17 miles (28 kilometers) from Vilnius, the former capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania is situated in a picturesque lakeside area, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions of the country.

Upon arrival, explore the historic town and well preserved ruins of the Peninsula Castle, set on its own island in Lake Galvė. Constructed in the 14th century, the castle was once of extreme strategic importance, falling into disrepair in the 17th century. Reconstructed according to its 15th century plan after World War 2, it’s now a major landmark of Lithuania.

Learn about the small ethnic Karaites group who settled in Trakai, along with Tartars, Russians, Jews, and Poles, and get panoramic views of Lake Galvė, the deepest of the region’s 200 lakes.
