I like Lithuania – a visitor's point of view

On the water in Trakai


DSCN1077This is about the first sight you see of the castle in Trakai when you get off the bus.

DSCN1025This was 2012 and my third trip there so after nourishing ourselves on soup, kibinai and a beer we hired a boat for a row round the lake.

DSCN1057DSCN1054The shots below show some of the bigger craft by the entrance to the castle, the one that looks like a paddle boat sponsored by our favourite beer – Švyturys.

  3. Trakai, one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited, and just a short trip from Vilnius. Worth going just to eat kibinai, drink svyturys beer whilst gazing across the lake at the castle………..not forgetting hiring a rowing boat for a trip around the lake.
