    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.

    The hundreds thousands of crosses look impressive , worth a visit , but too far from Vilnius, almost 5 hours both ways on train then bus.  more »
