Spring in Vilnius

Spring has finally arrived in Lithuania. The second half of the last week was warm and (mostly) sunny. It was superb weather for all kinds of trips. It is good occasion on its own and it becomes even better, when it coincides with something like an arrival of a friend. My friend from Moscow decided to visit Lithuania and I gladly showed him around.

Of course, we had mandatory trip to Trakai, but we have spent most of our time in Vilnius. Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, has rich history and you can definitely find something to your liking.

Hallowmas

I’m mostly indifferent to the all traditions, but I find this particular tradition to light the candles on All Saints’ Day so beautiful. Especially in the night, when hundreds or even thousands of burning candles can be seen from miles away…

Trip to Trakai

If you are planning to go to Lithuania and you are wondering where to go there, I can recommend Trakai. It’s a very nice historic city with Trakai Island Castle – a major tourist attraction. Today I went there with my cousin and, basically, I go there with all my friends from other countries, when they come to visit me. It is one of the “must see” places in Lithuania.
