Medieval castle, yey
10.05.2010 - 10.05.2010
Morning bus trip to Trakai castle, a real castle that was restored in the 1950's. Beautiful setting by a lake , the landscapes in this country are tranquil and beautiful.
Afternoon back in Vilnius, hit some of the sight seeing spots, got a little snap happy on the hill, great views of the city, also can see a neighbouring hill with 3 crosses, in memory of Franciscan monks that were murdered there. Also Vilnius has some odd statues around the place, found a statue of Frank Zappa with a very cool mural behind it. our hotel had some great graffiti too, and on the opposite wall someone had stuck teapots in the wall. Really.
Made a wish on the miracle tile, the endpoint of the joining of hands across the Baltic states as a protest against the soviet oppression.
This evenings meal was in the new republic, where dogs have rights, and for women, well clothes are optional.
