    Picked up from hotel by guide, who had sent a message the previous day with his name and confirming pick-up time. Giving us the opportunity to reply back. Rumsiskes museum was large, and spread out with interesting gardens and well kept buildings. We stopped for a coffee in the ‘town’, which was much needed. Luckily we remembered to bring insect repellent! Staff were extremely friendly to non-Lithuanian speaking visitors. Our guide was knowledgeable and informative, he answered all our questions (regardless of their relevance). Then we went to Trakai Castle, where we had a quick lunch before the tour of the castle and surrounding views. Finally stopped at Paneriai holocaust park, which was heartbreaking. A full day of walking and information. In retrospect it might have been better to only do two of the sights rather than the three, as the day was long and crammed with information. We have Lithuanian heritage so maybe were more interested in details than other people.
