To summarize, the Trakai Castle complex was once a residential palace for the Dukes of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The castle, which is surrounded by a fortification wall is home to a palace and a residential tower. As the status of the capital city moved from Trakai to Vilnius, it did lose some political significance, but it never lost the popularity among Lithuanian dukes and other noble folk. That said, back in the 16th century it was transformed into a prison, where noble war prisoners were held. It was eventually restored and transformed into a museum, back in 1962.
