Siauliai Hill of Crosses, Siauliai

(700+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Packed with effigies and memorials thought to have begun after an uprising against the Russian Empire, Siauliai Hill of Crosses plays home to nearly 100,000 crosses and represents one of Lithuania's most well-known sights. Bulldozed several times by Soviet authorities during their rule over the country, the hill has come back to life in the decades since Lithuania's independence. Visit the hill and wander the wooden pathways winding around the mound and you'll be surrounded by crucifixes of all sizes and styles. Don't miss taking an up-close look at the thousands of types of crosses carpeting the area; often larger ones are covered in hundreds of smaller examples attached with strings, rope, and rosaries. Feel free to add one of your own if you'd like to contribute to the hill's growth. Add Siauliai Hill of Crosses and other attractions to your Siauliai trip itinerary using our Siauliai vacation builder.
