If you find yourself deep inside Lithuania, then visit, but I'm not sure I would go out of my way unless you feel the need to make a religious pilgrimage here. We visited as a slight detour on our way back from the shore. In April the tourist shop, bathrooms, and cafe across the street were all closed, so be... More

There are bus tours that go here from Kaunas and Vilnius (we were staying in Vilnius) but I would recommend hiring a car (as theyre very cheap from local agencies) and enjoying the road trip at your own pace so you can stop at various places along the way. It also means that you can enjoy the hill itself, once... More

I have been to the Hill of Crosses on a number of occasions with various visitors, starting in 2006. The first couple of times I found myself very moved by the atmosphere of the place. The hill actually comprises a number of mounds, each covered by many thousands of crosses of all sizes, placed by many thousands of visitors and... More

It is not just one hill, but many, with crosses on slight elevations so very far. It is generally very quiet, with people of many nationalities speaking in soft voices. The large crucifix that Pope St. John Paul sent after his visit there is quite nice and stands by itself. I left a small crucifix from my parent's funeral there.... More

It is really an amazing place and when walking around you can feel that much has happened on that spot. The sound of the crosses moving by the wind... it did move me as well!

In a really quiet surrounding you see a hill full of crosses. Thousands have come here, prayed to the almighty and left a cross. I am not a Christian but was really moved to see this place.

Enormous amount of crosses. No matter how your piety high is, it's amazing. I saw so many crosses over there, even more than all crosses I've seen in my life. Gotta see this one, seriously. But, watch out! Except for that, in Siauliai, there are 'literally' nothing to do.

Thousands of crosses representing thousands of prayers. You have to see it to understand. Bring a cross, leave a cross, say a prayer, try not to shed a tear. Wow! Glad we went.

Having seen many pictures I totally underestimated the scale of this....work of art? I find it kind of creepy yet magnificent. It gets even more creepy that there is a religious radio station playing in between some of the crosses. Makes for food pictures especially if there is snow.
