Trakai castle is the biggest architectural building of such a type in Lithuania. Trakai castle which was built on one of the islands of the lake Galve is today the most attended architectural sight of Lithuania. It was a residence of Lithuanian grand dukes.
We had a guided tour through the castle – the yard and the rooms for representation. It was on a nice and warm pre-summer day, but I could not help thinking of the long winters in north east europe. The castle had floor heating in one room, but the rest of the rooms must have been bitter cold.
