The name of Trakai city is as old as Lithuania itself. Trakai is the cradle of power and honor of the old Lithuania. Since the end of the 14th century, the orders to the whole country were given from here; the messengers from other countries were welcomed here, and offered a royal hospitality. The kings still visit this land... It is virtually impossible to visit Trakai and not to try its traditional local dishes, such as karaim krupnik or the most famous fish of Trakai lakes – the vendace.
We invite you to 'Slėnis', where we will surprise you with the abundance of outstanding dishes and their surprising taste. It's not magic, it's just a recreated history of Trakai city which will invite to take a deeper look at the Island castle and Užutrakis manor.
