Description

If there’s something we Lithuanians are proud of, it’s our long, rich history. Even though we’re a small country now, there was a time when Lithuania was the largest country in Europe. It was part of a territory that included Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine, and the rulers resided in…Trakai.

Another highlight of this tour is Kernavė. Once a busy medieval town, it's now a place to escape the city and enjoy peaceful nature.

On this trip you’ll find out why the Soviet government allowed the Trakai Castle – a symbol of Lithuania’s glorious past – to be rebuilt, learn more about the Karaites and Tatars, discover why Karaite houses must have 3 windows facing the street, taste kibinai, and float around the castle on a pedal boat while enjoying the beautiful sights.
