What a view

Be prepared for all the steps to get there, but so worth it for the view. Stunning view of the city. Lovely walk through the park too

Worth a visit, but if able take a Segway as its a steep hill to walk. But worth the view, but thats all it is, a wonderful view over the Old Town :-) Oh and its free.

It was quite a walk up there to this place but the view was pretty amazing! In the summer, it's quite green and beautiful along the path leading up to the place as well. I love that at places like this, they always have this board showing you the landmarks you can view from where you stand. They have one... More

If you are visiting Gediminas Castle Tower, spent a little time to visit here too since it is just a short walk nearby. Walking up will give you a good exercise, especially at the last part leading up to the top. People used to challenge themselves by running up the slope to the top. If you drive, you can save...

The Hill of Three Crosses is visible from many points in central Vilnius and stands near to the Gedimino Tower Hill. Essentially it's a hill with, funnily enough...3 crosses on it. There is information at the top about the history of the crosses. It's a nice view and not too strenuous a walk up to the top. Worth the stroll... More

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.
