You can see panorama of old town of Vilnius with Gediminas hill and tower!
There is good asphalt way to Three Cross.

“Wonderful panoramic view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is the best spot in the whole city, from here you can enjoy a panoramic view over the city truly breathtaking.
Reaching the top of the hill is quite simple but physical it is an hard competition, the journey from the old town is more or less 30-40 minutes walking to reach the 3 crosses must deal with a long staircase on the hillside. Once you reach the top of the surrounding area is really exciting, the 3 white crosses are visible from many parts of the city and see them up close is something unique.
Definitely one of the top attractions of the city.

“The keyword here is HILL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

You'll get more than enough exercise on this steep walk to the top. People complain that it’s not worth it because it’s the same height as Gediminas, but there’s not a ton to do in Vilnius so if you have the time, you might as well go for it. Go at a different time of day from Gediminas to see different views of the skyline.

“Lovely place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Nice place to watch the sunset over the Vilnius oldtown. Make sure you have enough time to climb the stairs to catch the sunset cause it's really not fun to run up so high.

“Historic location overlooking the city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

A good walk up, if a little unsafe in places with the steps decaying - so need to watch step if accessing from the river/ direction of the tower.

The site of older wooden crosses and then of replacements which were removed by the soviets. The new crosses are a bit lost on the wooded hillside. Good view though.

no facilities at this location.
