It's really worth climbing up and seeing the view over the Vilnus city, the old part mixed with the newer one. In comparison to Gediminias Tower this attraction is for free, all you need is a bottle of water (on a hot day) and strength to climb :) I would be very careful on a rainy day coz it may... More

For you are looking for that breath taking view of Vilnius, then this hike is what you require. It is a steep 35 minute walk up hill, but is well worth it.

From the park below you have to walk up some pretty rickety steps to get up to the crosses and some of these are broken and look a little dangerous. If you are not 100% mobile, I wouldn't recommend this route up to the crosses and to find an alternative route. However, once you are up there, the view over... More

Its a very steep hill up to the top of the hill, whichever direction you come at it, but the views of the Old Town and Gediminas Tower are amazing! The structure itself is really impressive too. Try to come on a clear day for the best views.

Symbols of Lithuania. They represent mourning and hope. They were rebuilt to represent those removed by Stalin. Worth a visit if this interests you otherwise you could easily just take photos from a vantage point such as Gendiminas Tower.

These two hills are across from each other, and neither is worth the climb. Just look up from cathedral square and admire the view.

15 minutes steep walk up the hill was really worth it. When we came up we could see both old and new Vilnius. And the view was better than from Gediminas Tower, since the altitude was higher.

Nice view of the city but without a cab or car I doubt you would want to walk it. The crosses has been there in some form since the 16th century

This isn't hard to get to. It's a bit of a hike up the hill but if you go from the left side of the big cathedral then you walk up the road the whole way instead of through the forest. Awesome view of the city and interesting structure. First built in the 1600s and then of course brought down... More
