Nice area and impressive castle but lot of people during the weekend. You can have a good lunch opposite to the castle in the lounge enjoying the view on the lake.

Absolutely worth to take a trip! It takes aprox 30 mins by bus from Vilnius and one way ticket costs only 1.77 euro. Dont forget to taste their famous yummy kybinai from "foodtruck" near to the river

Beautiful castle and it is full of furnitures; the amazing thing is that people, who used to live here, had used all of the items you see inside. It is worth to visit; even for the bridge entrance!

Beautiful castle, but the museum part inside is not worth visiting. Night lighting is also quite good and romantic. Also, there's a nice restaurant opposite the castle, leftish from the bridge.

A must-go place when in Lithuania. Beautifully restored historical monument in a picturesque setting. Enjoy a walk outside the castle walls on a late spring day. It's a memorable place.

Very cool! Costs about 6-8 euros to see the inside though. But there's food, shops, and boating all in this area. Definitely recommend.
