  • Cross in the ceiling was my first reaction, when I first came to this site. The Hill of Crosses or Crosses as it is called in Swedish is a famous pilgrimage site, situated near the city of Siauliai in Lithuania. On this site there is a spiritual, mystical and eerie atmosphere, in part with the approximately 100 000 crosses. The location where the crosses, see has a long history and is mentioned in several historical sources dating back to the mid-1300 's. The talks, among other things, about why we've travelled cross at this location and how people repeatedly and over time has tried to destroy the place, but never succeeded. Would recommend to future visitors that it is important to have good shoes if you're going to see this site.

  • Pilgrimage spot in Lithuania. It is basically a hill full of crosses from people who go there and just stick them. Usually crowded so choose wisely when you want to go.
  • Truly unique, worth the visit and oh! What a sight to behold. hill of crosses signifies Lithuanian Catholic identity to the whole world
  • Moving. Stunning. Outstanding. Loved every second there .... felt the presence of God in every step.
  • It's fine, but you litterary get what you want... A HILL OF CROSSES.. at least it's free.
  • Very cool place. I forget if it was more than 200,000 crosses they say are there, but man there are ALLOT of crosses. I felt like I was on a movie set. Crazy place. Glad I visited.
