Golden Days in Trakai Castle

Autumn has finally come. Blink, and the palette utterly changed. Beautiful days, aren’t they?

This reminded me about charming autumn in Lithuania, the country loved by many Ukrainians for its political loyalty and support for the country; as well as for magic spirit of Vilnius, sea breeze in Palanga, delightful cuisine and great variety of craft beers.

For me, one of the loveliest and romantic places in Lithuania is Trakai – medieval gothic  castle not far from Vilnius. Trakai is the only castle in Eastern Europe built on the island in the middle of a lake. As the former capital of the country and home for nobles, it’s history is covered with legends and poems. Though now it’s only a museum open to all.

I’ve been to Trakai twice: this summer and years earlier in autumn.

Just wanted to show you the magic touch of the season. The glow.

Enjoy the days, friends.
