Want to see the old town from above? Hill of three crosses is the best way to do that in day, or night time. Don't be scared of so many steps, it is worth climbing them.

There is path from the river, you need to climb app. 230 stairs to get there, so avoid hot afternoons, a bottle of water is of great value. There has been wooden crosses on the site for ages, but they were replaced with crosses made of concrete in 1910s. They were also included in the 50 lit bills of Lithuania.... More

I couldn't believe the number and different types of crosses. If you're so inclined, you can buy a small cross & leave it among the others as an offering.

A nice walk leads you up to the three crosses. Staying there, try to imagine that during the Soviet occupation, all religious symbols should be destroyed. Some brave people took these three crosses away and buried them. After Soviet they were restored. Enjoy the view!

The best way to go from Vilnius is by train. I took the train at 11h30. Return ticket costs around 18€. You go to Šiauliai. It is about 2 hours by train. There are not many busses to go from Šiauliai train station to hill of crosses. I prefered taking a cab, as it is quite cheap and quicker. Hill... More

Perhaps at one time there were just 3 crosses, now it is impossible to count how many have been placed there. To some it is a religious site, to others just an unusual place to visit, but there can be no other place like it anywhere else.

The hill of the three crosses offers great views of the city and is definitely worth the effort to visit. There are several routes up the hill, some of which involve long flights of steps. The easiest access seems to be via the road and path off T. Kosciuskos g. from the Neris river side, though you'll need to watch... More

The hill was first spotted when I was on the Gediminas Hill and immediately I know I need to be at this hill to check out the white monument! We took a short cut up and it was tiring, nonetheless worth it! Extremely nice scenery to look at from this view point!

Accessed from Kalnu Park which itself is well worth a walk round. The walk up hill is finished off with a climb up wooden steps to the top. Well worth the climb for the excellent view of the city. If you only want to do one of the hills do this one, it overlooks Gediminas Hill. The Three Crosses are... More
