Trakai Island Castle - Trakai History Museum

Castles & Country Houses, Museums & Art Centres, Music
The Trakai Island Castle, today part of the Trakai History Museum, was built in the 14th century as a residence for the Grand Dukes of Lithuania. Unfortunately, it fell into disarray in the 17th century until 1951, when it was rebuilt to become a museum. 

The museum features exhibitions of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania, various archaeological findings and artefacts, as well as a collection of art.

The castle is well known for its gothic architecture and its beautiful location on an island on Lake Galve.

In the summer there are medieval festivals, concerts in the castle’s courtyard, and other events.
