  • Was definitely worth the visit out of Vilnius. We got there early and took a short boat tour around the island too. 5 euros each which we didn't think was bad. There's a great audio tour which you can download on your phone via their app (there is a cost). Well restored and well laid out for visitors to make sure they don't miss anything. There's plenty of ways to get here from Vilnius but just before aware the trains aren't too regular and the bus might be the best option of you have a lot of time.
  • The castle is partly restored, rebuilt accordingly to it's previous glory. Some people think the ruins should be left as they were as it's more authentic but I must admit, it was really nice to get the impression of dimensions. The closed courtyard looks nowadays more like a prison but those days it was a peaceful place for a mighty man. The display of treasury was enjoyable but also the small town with colourful wooden houses along the lake side.
