Today, Trakai Island Castle greets visitors inside its walls. The fortress is formed with red brick walls that rise up from the greenery surrounding the castle. And, the inside still hosts paintings and photos from an almost forgotten era. 

One of the most beautiful areas — the arched ceilings of the chapel, which holds brightly-lit chandeliers.
