When I visited Trakai, it was just day after my Bday. And there happened the best thing that I could imagine, that I could wish. We decided that we should go to some restaurant fot lunch. And when we entered to this restaurant ( I have no idea what was the name ) we just saw that there sit famous Russian ballerina Maja Pliseckaja! We saw that she, her husband and her friend decided to go away. And this was my time! Time to say ''Hello'' to her! And that is what I did :-)
I just said Hello, are you Maja Pliseckaja? And she said '' Am i look like Maja Pliseckaja''? I said ''Yeeeah. Can I take picture with you''? ''Yes, shore''. And then her friend take a picture, this picture :-)
This was the best gift to my Bday, you know :-)
As I know she lives not far or in Trakai.
So you never know where and how you can mee someone!
- Pros:Beautiful and old castle.
