Trakai Historical National Park, Trakai

(4.8/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
Encompassing the medieval capital of Lithuania and the countryside that surrounds it, Trakai Historical National Park represents the country's smallest national park and evokes the feeling of a by-gone era. Though only a short drive from the capital, the 8,200 hectare (20,263 acre) area features castles, historical farmsteads and villages, woodlands, manor houses, and little infrastructure away from the main attractions. Lakes make up a considerable portion of the park and help form the defenses of a popular tourist attraction--the restored 15th-century Trakai Island Castle. Rent a boat to explore the sights from the water. The castle area is also home to a number of souvenir shops selling traditional Lithuanian crafts. Once you've worked up an appetite, sample some kibinai, a traditional Karaite pastry, from a waterfront cafe. Before you head to Trakai, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Trakai holiday planner, to make sure you see all that Trakai has to offer, including Trakai Historical National Park.

  • This Park was founded in 1991, this crowded weekend. It has many bike paths and many paths for walking. With beautiful lakes. Luka and Totoriskiu. The most important thing for my taste is the castle of the red brick which is located on the island. Which is accessed by a pedestrian bridge.
