    During this private day tour you will be able to explore the most interesting sites in the surrounding areas of Vilnius. The tour will start from Paneriai memorial park, where thousands of Jews from Wilna were killed.  The Paneriai or Ponary massacre was the mass murder of up to 100,000 people by German SD, SS and Lithuanian Nazi collaborators, during World War II. The murders took place between July 1941 and August 1944 near the railway station of Ponary, now known as Paneriai, a suburb of what is today Vilnius, Lithuania. After the tour in the park, you will head to the second capital of Lithuania, where today you can see the most beautiful castle, on the island in the lake. Here, you have the possibility to enjoy lunch in traditional Karaim restaurant or take boat trip around the lake. After, the group will head to the temporal capital of Lithuania - Kaunas, which is second largest...

    Because of the flexible itinerary it was possible to adapt the sights to the number of expected traffic for festivities in Kaunas. Starting with sad history of the Nazi regime killing about 100000 people from Vilnius and just burying the remains in the Paneriai Forest. With the good weather we continued to Kaunas to see many of its churches, the little fortress walking around most of the time. When we finally got to Trakai Castle I learnt about the way of defending the different parts of the castle, how the islands were connected by bridges and what else to do in Trakai. I highly recommend this tour.
