This year, the Christmas period will see a lot of events and action in the city, especially on the pedestrian-friendly Karaimas Street: an ice-skating rink will be open all winter long on the observation deck in front of Trakai Island Castle, the Trakai Art School will host the “Christmas Factory” workshop, and a fair will be buzzing in Karaimas Street.
The townspeople, especially the little ones, will be delighted by the wandering Santa’s post office, which invites them to a different area of the town every weekend. And the Trakai Culture and Art Centre will be sure to get everyone in the Christmas spirit with its events!
- As we approach the Christmas season, we invite Trakai’s residents, educational institutions, and businesses to decorate their institutions and homes – the environment – together with the theme of Christmas stars, so that the city can take on a distinctive and harmonious meaning. Let the stars shine in every window and outdoor decoration, creating the warmest Christmas mood. We leave the vision of Christmas stars to your creativity.
- To transform the city into a cosy and glowing Christmas town, this year we are implementing a new idea for a Christmas tree alley on Karaimas Street. We invite all educational institutions, companies, organisations and communities to take part in the initiative and prepare their own Christmas tree or Christmas installation to display. Registration is open until 18 November, and the trees can be placed at the indicated locations until 28 November. Your Christmas trees will be lit up alongside the city’s main tree on 1 December, creating an unforgettable Christmas story. Please specify the height, width, material and other technical details of your Christmas tree when you register. For more information, please contact Evelina Kislych-Šochienė, Advisor to the Mayor of Trakai District Municipality, +370 646 66 793, e-mail..
- We also invite all entrepreneurs and craftsmen to join the Christmas Fair and to move their trade to Karaimų Street during the weekends of December, delighting citizens and visitors with their products, souvenirs, warm tea, delicacies and the smell of gingerbread. For registration and further information, please contact Trakai Seniūnicija at (8 528) 55 730, e-mail..
Cooperation and everyone’s contribution is very important to us. If you have ideas and would like to contribute with suggestions or activities to create the Christmas spirit in the city, be sure to get in touch by November and let’s make Trakai a city of Christmas stars together!
