Winter At Trakai Island Castle

Open any calendar or tour guide for Lithuania and you'll run across a picture of Trakai castle. It's easy to see why. Trakai is an elegant brick structure situated on its own island within lake Galve. Think of it like Japan's Golden Pavilion Temple, in being photo-ready.

Trakai in winter. The castle dates to the 14th century.

Inside the compound and a look at the Ducal Palace, reached by a drawbridge.

The moat, now dry.

View from the compound to the lake. Ducal Palace courtyard.

The mighty outer wall and corner tower.
