Trakai

Trip Planner Europe  /  Lithuania  /  Vilnius County  /  Trakai

Lake Town

Just west of Vilnius lies the lake resort and historical city of Trakai, famed for its fairy tale-like cityscape and the eclectic mix of communities that built it. With its easy proximity to the capital, this it's easy to take a day trip here to see the wooden houses lining the lakeside streets and an impressive red-brick castle. Many visit during the summertime, when the city hosts numerous events and festivals. Trakai was made and maintained by Karaims, Tatars, Lithuanians, Russians, Jews, and Poles, along with others who lived there over the centuries (it was first mentioned in the 14th century). Today it is completely protected as a part of the Trakai Historical National Park, making it a popular place for recreational activity. Make your own Trakai vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Lithuania trip itinerary planning tool .

Places to visit with Trakai

Where to stay in Trakai

Opulent hotels compete with homey guesthousees in Trakai. The luxurious logdings here feel more like resorts than hotels, where the amenities include in some cases their own lakes. If you're coming to see the city's main attraction, the island castle, consider a more budget-friendly bed and breakfast or homestay. While amenities are fewer, many compensate with great locations, some even with castle views, and will make you feel as if you are staying at a friend's cozy cottage.
