There is only one road that connects to the castle in the middle of the lake, it is said was made so that enemy forces can noteasily penetrate the medieval war-time past.
When you get to the castle gate, we soon discovered the classic style of gothicarchitecture is very strong. in the middle of building a palace surrounded by thick walls as a fortress of defense. stepped into the central building, there are decorated with stained glass and paintings depicting the life of Kęstutis magpie in his time.
