The Hill of Three Crosses overlooks the old town and is visible from all round. Previous crosses on the same hill were pulled down during repression. They are in a moderate state of disrepair now.

The hill of three crosses is located right on the hill next to the Gediminas castle and just like its neighboor, offers a great view upon the old town of Vilnius. It's an about 15 minute walk from the cathedral square and doesn't require particular...More

The three crosses is located in a park not far from the Gediminas castle. three crosses on this hill in the city center are thought to have been erected in the 17th century by Franciscan monks, to pay tribute to fellow monks that were murdered....More
