Karaimu Street

Interesting
Karaites have lived in Trakai since the late 14C, when Vytautas invited them to come here from the Crimea to guard the fortress. Today, less than 100 Karaites live here, mostly on Karaimu Street. Note their houses in painted wood, all of which follow the same layout; don't miss themuseum dedicated to the Karaites at n°22 and their temple (kenesa) at n°30.
