Little bit of a walk but found it interesting. The story of the crosses is interesting, the walk through the surrounding Park land was nice and the views from the top of the hill, very good. Also worth walking down the front to see the remains of the original crosses which were removed by the Russians. Just one word of... More

For views better go to Gediminas tower. That said there is no need to go up to see the crosses. Just seeing them from afar is enough. Better save time for better attractions in Vilnius.

The place is amazing, great, simple and magical and all at the same time. There are some legends why those three crosses are standing there and from that point you can see the beautiful panorama of Vilnius no matter of the season because in different season the colours of the city are different.

Not much to do up there, but the views are pretty amazing! Bit of an incline up hill to walk up, plus some stairs for those who have trouble walking.

I'm oddly fascinated by this monument. The walk up the hill was definitely enjoyable if you like hiking as I do. The view on the city is more sweeping than other viewpoints and it is quite a nice monument in itself.

I mean...if you climb up to Gediminas Tower, you'll get a very decent view of the Hill of Three Crosses. SO, unless you're super into crosses, it makes more sense just to go up to the Tower, and take pictures of the Hill from there. (Just my two cents)

Of course you can hike way up if you call for views, the monument does best seen from Bernardiny Garden

It's beautiful there but even more beautiful at night when they light up the crosses on the hill! Highly recommend! Beautiful!

If you want to see on of the best sunsets of Vilnius try this place. Why? Check the photos that I made. This place is in the center of the city, it has a great view, so if you come to Vilnius, check the place. If you wait for the sunset, you can see all the city lights coming up.

Climbed up the hill at night and we took the short cut by cutting through the row of trees instead of taking the road, was not as tough as it seems, quite a quick short climb though can be a little steep. Lovely views of the city from the top. Can be quite cold so wrap up while you're there!
