Friendly housholder adviced us to try local food as 'Kibines' - exclusive breakfast! The lake is so picturesque that we could just be sitting at the shore and gazing. Impressive castle, though tickets price is high.

It is not just an island castle. It is a historic village of a unique people with delicious traditional food. The medieval festival at the Peninsula Castle, across the lake from the Island Castle, was a wonderful experience!

Swimming in the lake everyday was incredible. Really lovely surroundings. We ate mainly at our B and B (Argo) and the food was amazing. If we had had longer renting bikes would have been wonderful for more exploring.

The castle of course was amazing! It was cold and rainy but we warmed up in the chocolate shop our host recommended.

Visiting Trakai you should definately try local cusine that differs from Lithuanian national dishes. It's called kibinine - a pie of different fillings that has reached Trakai by people called the Karaites, a Judaic sect and Turkic minority originating in Baghdad, which adheres to the Law of Moses. Their descendants - some 380 families - were brought to Trakai from the Crimea around 1400 to serve as bodyguards. So it's a must have to taste these pies.

There are a lot of waters in Trakai to get fresh fish for dinner, many of restaurants offer you already caught fish, but nothing compares with fish caught by your own. In TonyResort the restaurant will serve the fish for you that is caught in Resort's pound.

As I was visiting Trakai in November, no crowds were being to avoid. There were very few people hanging around seeking for warm place where to hide from autumn winds and rain.

Trakai is definately a place to walk, the most of it's sights should be discovered by foot. Either it's the very centre of Trakai or pine forest pathes.
