I find it difficult to find words to adequately describe a place consecrated by the individual acts of what must be hundreds of thousands of people over decades (centuries?). Who left the first cross there and why? And what moved people by the thousands to follow suit? And how did it survive the trials of Lithuania's history? I walked away with more questions than answers, but I will say that I walked away deeply moved.
The crosses left on that hill vary from well machined large metal ones to the far more numerous simple homemade or improvised ones. This a place demonstrating the power of simple acts by individual people. You should find a way to get there

Visited this Site en route to Riga in bad weather but it was still mind boggling- actually two adjoining hill "smothered" with crosses- gives you an insight how a place of pilgrimage evolves.
I really do not know how one can estimate how many crosses are here as they are piled layer upon layer. A must see if you are traveling this route.

This unusual sight is located 12 km north of the city of Šiauliai. You can either get there with bus or car - there is no entrance fee. Hundred and thousands of crosses has been left/placed on this little hill since reportedly the 1800s. Pictures does not do the place justice.
