Sometimes a day can be not enough to fully discover the town. We have chosen ten historic settlements this time all around the world that have caught our attention.

The historic Gothic Palace was built by Lithuanian dukes in XIV century and served as their residence, since the city was a capital at the time. It is the only island castle in Eastern Europe. Today the Palace is open for the tourists. The museum has a wide display of Medieval exhibits. Many concerts and various events are organized in this gorgeous place.
