Trakai City - "City of Lakes"
Trakai is the historical capital of Lithuania. Here stands our pride - the only castle in Eastern Europe built on the island.
The history of Trakai begins in Old Trakai - legends say that it was built in the 14th century and was founded by the Grand Duke of Lithuania Gediminas at the beginning of the 19th century.
Do you believe in legends? People say that Trakai was caused by a woman's whim. Birute, the wife of Duke Kęstutis, did not like living in Old Trakai because there was too little water nearby, as was usual in her native Palanga. Therefore, in order to please his wife, Kęstutis began construction of a new castle surrounded by lakes and there appeared the New Trakai city.
