Locations: Vilnius & Trakai
Highlights: (Vilnius) Beautiful Churches, Genocide /KGB Museum, (Trakai) Island Castle, Swan & Spa
Description of Highlights:
•Beautiful Churches – The largest “Old Town” in Europe, numerous beautiful churches and other great architecture found as you meander down windy cobblestone paths.
•Genocide/KGB Museum – A complete history of the Soviet occupation of Lithuania. Very detailed accounts of cruel and unusual punishment and other misdeeds conducted by the KGB.
•Island Castle – This castle is set in the middle of five lakes and is picture perfect when you envision a fairy tale! You can rent boats and paddle around the lakes and enjoy the picturesque scenery of the castle and surrounding woods.
•Swan – We met a friendly swan while having a dinner picnic on a boat dock. She really liked bread and didn’t want us to stop feeding her!
•Spa - We found a great package deal at a local resort and spa. In addition to having many relaxing treatments we also got to enjoy the use of the resorts indoor waterpark. The park had slides, saunas, hot tubs and everything else you could want inside and out of the cold!
