The reason we returned to Lithuania having not seen them our first trip. This is the most sacred site in Lithuania- and it is an awe inspiring and very moving site. Listed as 200,000 crosses it looked much more- the hill is covered in crosses great and small with pathways between them. Around the hill and reaching on either side... More

We took a taxi uphill as it is a strenuous climb for people with walking problems. The taxi cannot take you all the way up there. A minor climb and a staircase lead up the the view point under the three crosses. We had good weather which made the view even more enjoyable. The good thing about this vantage point... More

Beautiful and majestic place. But we could't find a civil path to this place. There was one path with lng stairs that seemed to be not in good condition, seemed dangerous. Therefore decided no to go closer.

Excellent views of Vilnius, all around. Set amongst a park, very lush and green. The climg up there is worthwhile, although you might arrive breathless!

Another hill with crosses on it. If you are excited by such things. Europe is full of churches and crosses, only special if you are moved by this.

If like us you like to walk off the beaten track then take the lower path. It's a bit of a rough path way up to the Hill of the Three Crosses - but you can instead cross the bridge on T. Kosciuškos gatvė 4 and first right turn will be an easy road up to the hill. We found... More

It is well worth going up to the Hill of the Three Crosses: there is a great view of the city from up there and the surroundings are also beautiful.

You can't miss the three crosses on the hill overlooking Vilnius. They mark the site where seven monks were crucified in the 14th C. The Soviets destroyed the original memorial, so what you see today are brilliant white crosses circa 1989. There are numerous paths up to the monument through Kalnų Park. One way is across a small bridge near... More

We were taking a tour of the Baltic States and stopped here on the way from Lithuania to Latvi? Simply an awe-inspiring site!
