Europe Travel Guide: Before You Travel Europe, Consult 'Travel Europe'!
If you have time and you have come to Lithuania during a warm period, we recommend that you visit Trakai. This is a rather small town with a lovely castle and little more than a few streets. But the visit is worth it! After touring the castle with its museums and restaurants, you can take a boat ride around the castle or walk through the charming little town and enjoy a drink or a snack at one of the many restaurants lining the lake which offer a view of the castle. You can come here by a one hour taxi ride, but if you do, be sure to organize your trip back in advance. Taxi service out of Trakai is in short supply and may not be available in the evenings. Alternatively, you may come for a day visit. Many tour companies offer bus excursions to Trakai. Ask about tours from the reception of your hotel
