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.

Just like Gediminas Tower, going up allows you to admire a nice landscape of the city, apart from the Three Crosses themselves. Recommended.

As I said in a title, the hill opens wonderful view all around Vilnius. Another plus is beautiful nature, near is a riwer, Bernardinai Gardens. Also this place is a meaningful for lithuanians.

This hill with it's three crosses dominates the skyline over Vilnius. Legend has it that it is the site of the beheading of seven Franciscan friars way back. There have been crosses here to mark the spot since the early part of the seventeenth century...More

lies in the middle of a park, although the guide said, that it was not a park because it is not tidy enough

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
