The Island Castle of Trakai, Lithuania

Lithuania > Trakai

14 April 2012

A visit to Trakai, an old capital of Lithuania, where the beautiful 14th c. Island Castle was built. Trakai is also the spiritual home of the Karaite people, who were taken here from Crimea in the 14th c. They practise a faith which is a mix of Jewish and Islam, and now there are only 250 of them left.
