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. You can get to the top by foot or partway...More

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

We accidentally found out about that place. After New year's eve, it was not much crowded. You can have a wide view of Vilnius and also see the TV tower. It's a highlight of everyone's trip to Vilnius. The monument itself is also interesting because...More

Walk up to the hill via forest paths. At the top you get a great view of the city below. Worth the effort

Definitely recommend going there, the view over Vilnius is stunning. And it's a nice walk through a small forest.

The hill is located literally "at the side" of the Old Town and it takes no more than half an hour of walk to get there (it is uphill but all these "climbing" descriptions you can find here are greatly exaggerated, whatever route you take)....More

You can reach the summit of this hill which dominates the Old Town of Vilnius via a walking trail from the south side or a road on the north side. Its a strenuous uphill walk either way, but you'll be rewarded with a great panorama...More

You'll have to almost literally climb that hill, especially if you're heading to it from Bernadine Garden by wooden stairs, however, view on the city worth your efforts

Interesting! I found the sheer number of crosses of all shapes and sizes quite overwhelming. It looked "messy" and almost tacky. However, I can appreciate that for many, this would be quite a moving and sacred place.

I walked up thru the Bernardine gardens but it was a slog climbing all the wooden steps. Walked down bringing us out at the Neris river above the bridge and the Old Arsenal. This I think would be a better way to walk up... More
