Was very windy and cold in late December. Hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of crosses. Quite strange and unique place.

It's a relatively small area but the amount of crosses is hard to get your head around they are everywhere its a wonderful sight but isolated and can be cold.
Amazing number of crosses that years of Soviet occupation couldn't erase. Can walk up and down many paths, crosses everywhere. Small charge to leave car (.9 euro). There is an info and souvenir centre with nice toilets (.5 euro charge).
It’s special place, magic one. Everybody who visits this hill leave own cross. That is why there are many crosses here, incredible number of crosses you can see here.
One of the special places that we visited so far and already couple times. Can touch your hart. Unbelievable quantities of different crosses. Very recommended if you believe or even do not believe to any religion.
