A Day Trip to Trakai Castle

A day trip to Trakai is a must when your in Lithuania. The quaint place is just fascinating, those original wooden house are so beautiful. From Vilnius train station is a 30 minutes journey, and about 15 minutes walked from the Trakai train station to the Trakai Castle but it took us 30 minutes or so, with every stop we made, when we see interesting place. The church visits as well as taking lots of photos along the way.

As soon as we got off the train we were greeted by this beautiful and peaceful view. I can easily imagine myself having a lazy relaxing day with this magnificent lake view.

We continued the scenic route and we stumble into the quaint place. The wooden houses are just so mesmerising, its very original old wooden houses some are almost derelict but it adds character to the whole neighbourhood.

Me and Andrea leisurely strolled along the mainroad when an old Lithuanian lady showed us the scenic route to the castle. As soon as we took the turn we were greeted by the lake and on the far left we can see the stunning castle seated on the middle of an island surrounded by water
