When we reached the place with the party of tourists I had an eerie sensation from the distance as I saw a hill covered with crosses, but as I got nearer I began to understand the great faith of the Lithuanians and their indomitable resistance against the communist authorities to prohibit their religion and their fight for their beliefs, because...

Another nice view of the city, not a hard walk so would recommend it, the weather was ok for me, but can imagine it not being that enjoyable in bad weather.

Amazing view of the whole town! Walking might take a while but it's enjoyable as you can pass across the forest /park along the river

Don't miss this place. You can reach it taking the steps from the Bernardinai gardens. Probably the highest place in Vilnius, which offers stunning views.

Nice to get into a bit of countryside in the middle of a city visit. The story of the 3 crosses adds to your understanding of Lithuanian history, and it's a nice view from the top. Suggest going up the steps on the SW side then down the path and road on the opposite side.

Struggling up the steep side of the hill, I finally had the opportunity to get photos of the crosses. Um… Ever try to take pix of trees when standing at the base? I deleted them, focusing on the view, especially of Užupis. I located the distinctive red brick Baroque Saint Anne (pronounced Anna in Europe) Church, knowing that Mabre Hotel... More

An amazing place to see and a great panorama over the city and its fortress. There are also explanations regarding the history and the meaning of these three crosses. One bad point though, at night there is no light at all in the park leading to the crosses, bring your torch over there.

A steep climb up from the front, less steep from the back. Walking through the gardens yo get there is an added bonus. But well worth it to see a wonderful panorama of the city. The crosses themselves are attractive, but it's quite difficult to get sufficient perspective to get a good photo.

Although you need to go up the hill - it's worth it! And a very positive thing - while we were there (end of August) not many people, so you can enjoy the view in peace and quiet! :)
