Travel Tips for Trakai

Town built on water :-)

by matcrazy1

Trakai was a town built on water. It was located on long peninsula surrounded by five lakes: Lukos (Bernardinu), Totoriskiu, Galves, Akmenos and Gilusio. There was a bridge over a lake which connected the northern end of the peninsula with main land. Look at the clickable map of Trakai here, please.

Guided tours

by matcrazy1

There were a lot of groups, usually small ones (up to 10-15 persons) guided by hired guide in the Trakai castle. I could hear mainly Polish and Russian language, but there was one group guided in English as well.

Guided tours for groups up to 30 persons costed:
- in Lithuanian language - 40 Lt (for Lithuanian pupils - 20 Lt)
- in foreign language - 50 Lt (€ 15; US$ 18; 70 Polish zl).
To hire a guide in foreign language book in advance in Trakai History Museum - details here.

Stick a Zeppelin in your mouth

by scubaphoto

Take care with this one it has a nasty habit or burning you as you attempt to eat it. A Zeppelin shape pastry filled with hot meat.# and very tasty i must admit.
For the ultimate Lithuanian experience enjoy this little piece of heaven with a pint (or litre here) of a local beer. Both are best enjoyed by taking in the views of the castle from the lake shore and people spotting.

Did I meet a prince?

by matcrazy1

Walking along street stalls on southern bank of Galve Lake, I met this guy on my picture. He was dressed like an old prince, I suppose. Look at his numerous orders and his decorative sabre/sword. I didn't see any more locals in historical costume dresses in Trakai.

Lithuanian costume dress

by matcrazy1

Walking around Trakai, I didn't see any locals dressed in national costumes. Instead, I found this ceramic plate with dancing couple dressed in national Lithuanian dress. Yellow, green and red are national colours of Lithuania and its flag. And Lithuania is "Lietuva" in Lithuanian language.
