Step back in history, while you soak up the atmosphere in Paneriai Memorial Park and spectacular Trakai Castle.
What to Expect
Firstly, a driver will pick up you from your centrally located hotel/apartment. Then drive to Panerai Memorial. Paneriai before WWII was the beautiful forest and recreational area for residents of Vilnius and its surroundings. In 1940 and 1941 Red Army soldiers established a military base there. Within days of being captured by the Germans this base became a place of execution. Authentic museums with photographs, orders and other documents; burial pits; burning places and commemorative monuments are represented in the Paneriai memorial park.
Afterwards, visit Trakai, which used to be a medieval residence of the Lithuanian Grand Dukes. Go on a guided excursion to legendary castle, where you will be able to have a glance at interesting historical items.
A half hour will be dedicated to some free time where you can explore on your own and find some souvenirs and/or taste traditional Lithuanian and Karaites dishes (not included).
After this enchanting experience your driver will take you back to Vilnius and drop you off at a centrally located place.
