If you are in Trakai, do not restrict yourself to a walk along the lake – visit the Užutrakis Manor on the other side, too. The impressive manor, located on a peninsula between the Galvė and Skaistis lakes, was built in the end of XIX c. by the order of count Josef Tyskiewicz. The Užutrakis estate covers a whole 600 hectares of land, so, believe me, there is plenty to walk around. Start with the neo-classical palace created by the famous Polish architect, Jozef Huss. The beautifully kept English park is no less worthy of attention, the architect of which is Edouard Francois Andre, who has designed around 100 parks throughout Europe. If you visit during the summer, dedicate a few hours of your time to this place. Here, you can forget counting steps- the breathtaking landscape will take up all of your attention, and legs will carry you seemingly unconsciously over the gravel paths alongside the lake shore. If you wish for other kinds of entertainment, you might be lucky and Trakai will be holding one of its city fests. And from the manor to Trakai, it is only a few steps. That is, of course, given you have crossed the lake by boat.
