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.

In the middle of 'nowhere' you'll find the hill of crosses which is best to reach by car. For a small entranse fee you can visit the hill that keeps expanding everyday. You can buy a cross in different sizes for only a few euros if you like to. It is interesting to see and walk across and around it.... More

You'll need some strength to get here as the hill is lots of steps, but once you are here you get the best panorama of Vilnius, you'll see most Vilnius attractions from here :)

From this hill you will enjoy the best sight of Vilnius. The three crosses are just amazing. They are so white and they are put in such a perfect spot that it would take an entire day to admire them in all their beauty while the different lights of the day enlighten them. Visit this place!

Such an impressive monument in what it seems the middle of nowhere in Lithuania. We went here on our way from Riga to Vilnius and we were pleasantly surprised we were all so impressed by these crosses. It's nice to walk through them, the scenery is quiet and peaceful. I really liked being here.

If you're in Vilnius for a short visit, and would have to choose whether to visit Gediminas Castle or The Hill of Three Crosses, then sure go for Gediminas Castle, it's the symbol of Vilnius, and it's more convenient to reach. But if you already visited Gediminas, the weather is nice, you have some free time and feel like taking... More
