Description

Construction of the Island Castle on one of the larger islands of Galvė Lake began in the second half of the 14th century. Presumably, the construction of the castle was begun by the Grand Duke Kęstutis and was concluded in the early 15th century by his son Vytautas. It was meant to be a fortress. The castle was built in a Gothic style with some Romanesque elements. In the beginning of the 15th century, Trakai was a flourishing city, frequently visited by merchants, honoured guests, and foreign messengers, who were welcomed in the Great Hall of the Island Castle. The reconstruction of the Island Castle started in 1953.
