Trakai, Lithuania

This Saturday at noon at Gedimino castle, onlookers will be able to welcome back the triumphant horse riders who have completed their ride from the Trakai to the Black Sea.

The trip, called 2000 km in history, took the roads of the former Grand Duchy of Lithuania, going through present day Belarus and Ukraine.

Accompanying the riders on their triumphant return to Vilnius will be Alsi, the stray dog that began following the horsemen and women at the beginning of the trip and never left.

On Sept. 8 the riders left Trakai and took just 38 days to reach Ocakovo in Ukraine. Video was made from the trip, which covered several important historical sites.

The seven men and two women in the party will be sharing stories from their trip once they finish.
