In my daily life, I dream a lot about travel. While I’m working, I’m often thinking about gallivanting in distant lands, or reminiscing of my travel past where memories become more like dreams as I wonder now if it all really happened. It becomes even weirder when some of the destinations were actually more like fictional fairy tale settings in themselves.
One such fairy tale place was the castle in Trakai, Lithuania.
In the small sleepy town of Trakai, there lies the island castle that dates back to the 14th century. It has seen reconstruction many times since then, by Imperial Russia and the Germans both. The most recent reconstruction ended in 1961 leaving the castle more like a museum (an awesome one) that draws in tourists passing through this Baltic country. I recommend this as a day trip from Vilnius.
This castle makes my Friday dream travel destination. Enjoy!
