... medieval castle had 800 years of eventful history, and had been attacked 3 times by Ivan the Terrible. We walked around the town, visited an Orthodox Church, visited a lovely garden with swans, and spent some time at a smithys who made traditional style jewellery. We had a fabulous dinner at the guesthouse of fresh trout. We have a big drive tomorrow to Vilnius, the capital of ...
