This lakeside resort town is home to a historic castle dating back to the 14th century.

Trakai Island Castle (Lithuanian: Trakų salos pilis) is an island castle located in Trakai, Lithuania on an island in Lake Galvė. The castle is sometimes referred to as "Little Marienburg". The construction of the stone castle was begun in the 14th century by Kęstutis, and around 1409 major works were completed by his son Vytautas the Great, who died in this castle in 1430. Trakai was one of the main centres of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the castle held great strategic importance.

The castle may be the highlight, but don't miss the food! I started my meal with šaltibarščiai, a tasty cold red beet root soup, which is very popular in the summer. The soup includes beets, cucumbers, a boiled egg, sour cream, sour milk, scallions, and dill. For my entrée, I ordered the national dish: cepelinai. Although Lithuanians love it, they rarely make it at home because it takes forever to cook. You need several hours to make the potato dough, stuff it with grybai (mushrooms), mesa (meat), varškė (cheese), and then create the heavy sauce using sour cream, butter, bacon bits, and onions. By the time you finish making all that, you’ll be starving and the dish will taste delicious.
