Worth go boarded to have a look. also a good place overlooking all the old town of Vilnius. Good weather is must be. because it's all the way up the hill. If it is rainy or snow melt. Is dangerous .see the entire Vilnius Old town that you'll be enjoying the moment.

Nice place to visit on a sunny day, and a nice place to have a walk over the hill, which is actually rather steep, but while on the top offers a great view on the old town, a sunny day is better

Overwhelming experience. Big story. This is hard to imagine without seeing it. Even my photos pale compared to the over 100,000 crosses placed on the hill.

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.
