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.

  • An amazing place. When you turn to the mountain highway, along the road posts with nests of storks. The mountain can be seen almost immediately, but after every 200 metres, literally, it is perceived differently. It is better to put the car into the parking lot, although most intelligent drive to the mountains and were parked at the curb. Though there is prohibited to park. They do it because the road from the arranged parking to the foot of the Mountains of crosses, this path that customizes the visitor to meet unusual spot. Describe sensations that occur when visiting a Mountain very difficult. But the feeling that you are in the cemetery we have not emerged. Probably, there is a sense of unity of the people who believe in goodness, in wonder, in fairness, giving higher forces. I think everyone will find here. Some on the Hill do not rise. A walk around the cross, established by Pope John Paul the second, and back. Climb to the mountain top, wait and see. You will see that this place come not only Christians, but also representatives of other faiths. You will see how small this mountain, although the bottom seemed to be that big. And here children years before the 12-minute I would have not had here. Still very ambiguous place. Can cause very negative emotions. It is better to spare their child's psyche Larkspur.

  • The Hill of crosses is both a place of pilgrimage that a tourist destination. Thousands of crosses, testimony of devotion and votive offerings, are planted on the Hill. Not to be missed. I recommend going early in the morning, around nine, to anticipate the arrival of tour buses.
