There is a lot more to see and to do in Trakai than just wisiting Trakai Island castle. Must go destination for those who are interested in history. Also for those who like to rent a boat and spend a day by the one of many lakes.

A beautiful town buzzing with history and nature. Exploring the castle and strolling along the foreshore and through the historic part of town was a real pleasure

Very Good
Autumn is very beautiful here. In summer it is more comfortable. Get a boat, stay in bar outside near lake. Winter season is quiet. You can rest, go to sauna or visit local museums.

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.
