They sold a lot of, mostly kitschy, souvenirs and gifts, in this out-door gift store, on my picture. There were postcards, various bells, clothes, dolls, amber necklaces etc. available there.

What to buy: Postcards. I liked only a few black and white hand-made pictures of the castle (in pencil) displayed there.

What to pay: Tourist prices, high as for Lithuania, but... lower than in any such famous castle in Western Europe. Prices were not at all fixed. Try to bargain (preferably in... Lithuanian or Russian). Good luck :-).


Address: 4 Kestucio St, LT-4050 Trakai
Directions: Get to northern part of the peninsula and walk to the castle island through wooden bridges. Map here. The store/shop was in the southwestern corner of the forecastle yard, on the left when you enter the castle.
