Trying to figure out how to do all this in only three days was proving a bit challenging but I was undaunted. I would ask the locals, who were sure to know a shortcut or two. To this end, I presented Lina, the owner of Vilnius' coolest hostel, with my wish list. She briefly got the "Oh no, not one of these.." looks that I am pretty familiar with but gamely continued. "You will go to Trakai" she said. Sure, if it's worth a visit, I'll add it to my list. "No, you will only go to Trakai. You do not have enough time for all these other places." But, the crosses... "You would have to spend your entire holiday on buses. You will go to Trakai." The commie park? "Trakai!"
