Part 1

Tour to Kernave

This tour will start from driving to the Lithuanian Troy – Kernave, the archeological site located on the picturesque bank of the Neris River. People have settled and been buried here since immemorial time. UNESCO recognized the importance of the area that presents an exceptional testimony to the evolution of human settlements in the Baltic region for some ten millennia. However, for Lithuanians, Kernave is the symbol of statehood and the first capital of pagan Lithuania, about which there are many legends and stories.

We will walk the famous hill forts of Kernave and listen to the story of this one of the oldest Lithuanian towns.

Continue to ethnographic village Grabijolai to discover Lithuanian traditions and way of life outside the boundaries of big cities. 

In between these two amazing places, we will make a stop at the local crafts center to learn how to weave Verbos – a decoration made of dried flowers, plants, and moss. It is originated in the Vilnius region since the 16th century and traditionally used for the Palm Sunday celebration. 

 

Part 2

Tour to Trakai

The second part of the tour will take place in Trakai historical national park, famous for its island castle, surrounded by five lakes. However, Trakai stands out from other Lithuanian towns, not only by its charming landscape. It is widely known as the center of Karaites – a peculiar ethnic community that was brought from Crimea to Lithuania in the 15 c. Listen to our guide’s story about this unique Jewish offshoot and learn how and why they found Lithuania as their new comfortable home.

During your free time, you will have a chance to go out around the lakes in a little boat, have a Karaite style lunch at one of the numerous cafes, visit the famous castle, or simply enjoy shopping souvenirs.
