Very nice place to visit and definitely worth the drive. Slightly chilling with all the crosses, but it is a good hour spent walking on and around the hill. Very cool indeed.

Well, it wasn't my first visit here but once again I really liked the place. This place is absolutely spectacular. I have never seen something like that anywhere in the world. It's a must see place in Lithuania!

This place is beautiful and very moving. The hill is closer to Riga than Vilnius - only 1h40 minutes on very good roads. It's free to go and will reward you with some amazing photos. There's an official entrance that has a souvenir shop and...More

We made a detour to visit the Hill of Crosses when we were traveling between Riga and Vilnius. It is worth of a 45 minute stop and held the attention of all of our kids. It is worth reading the history online beforehand or watching...More

On a fairly remote location, there are hundreds of thousands of crosses placed by Estonians initially as a protest to the anti-religion of communism and a protest to the takeover of their country. Certainly worth the trip to see this, and on the path between...More

While travelling with friends we came across the hill of crosses by fortune....it wasn't our destination but we soon stopped and had a look...it's truly inspiring and spiritual....it's not a commercial site but very true and authentic...it not a massive place and there's nothing else...More

By the URL of this page, it includes "Reviews-Hill_of_Crosses-Korgessaare_Hiiu_County" but almost half of the photos are from the more famous one in Lithuania: photos by Ron W. and Linda_Sprr. They should be removed to the correct place out from Hiiumaa page, otherwise it is misleading.

Is it possible to get an organised day trip from Villinus to the Hill of Crosses - and if so, what kind of price would it be? Thanks in advance!

We stopped at Hill of Crosses while driving from Vilnius to Riga. However there were several coaches in the coach park so it may be possible but they may have come from Riga. Sorry cannot help more.
