Siauliai Hill of Crosses, Siauliai

(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We have done the tour from Vilnius. Have 2 hour drive (one way) but well worth the effort. The tour was carried out with the tour operator Welcome to Lithuania booked through Viator, Tripadvisor (€ 45.0) the guide was particularly helpful and entertaining. Along the way, another partisan visited memorial park and the Lithuanian history. The Hill of crosses is impressive. On the way back was stopped for lunch at a nice restaurant on a lake with local food at local rates. All in all a nice excursion at a very low rate guaranteed!! Compliments for Welcome to Lithuania tour operator
