Trakai is a very popular touristic destination nearby Vilnius. It has a castle (which was mostly rebuilt and thus not in its "original state"). Locals do trips here during summers for swimming and picnics; town is very pretty and surrounding nature makes it a nice getaway from Vilnius.

City has a small population of Karaims living in, but their culture and language is disappearing. Trakai has kenesa (synagogue) of the local Karaite community.
