WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE TOUR:

Venture outside Vilnius and join our tour to two former capitals of Lithuania. Join our small group tour to discover historically significant location with a local guide and enjoy the views of the Lithuanian nature. 

Lithuania’s first capital Kernavė is now a small town. But don’t be fooled by its size! You will visit Kernavė Archaeological Site and observe beautiful sights wherever you turn. 

If there’s something we Lithuanians are proud of, it’s our long, rich history. Even though we are small now, there was a time when Lithuania was the largest country in Europe. And the rulers of that country resided resided in…Trakai. Once in Trakai you will 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.
