We wrapped up our trip to Lithuania last Easter at Trakai Castle, a 14th century beauty on an island in the middle of a lake. It used to look like this (so dreamy!) but was reconstructed to its original glory after WWII.
Trakai Castle is as picturesque and magical as you want a castle in the middle of a lake to be—Disney ain't got nothing on this.
And if it doesn't convince you of Lithuania's coolness, I don't know what will.
Trakai is worth a day trip if you find yourself in Lithuania, and Lithuania is so worth exploring if you find yourself with itchy traveler's feet.
Thanks again to our wonderful hosts. We'll never forget Easter 2014.
