Home > Tours from Vilnius > Hill of Crosses tour

Let us take you to absolutely unique place in the whole world – one of the most important religious sites in Europe for all Catholics. Situated in northern Lithuania, near the city of Siauliau – forth biggest in the country, is one of the most interesting places that could be visited during one day tours from Vilnius. Today there are more than 100 000 crosses standing on this hill. It is not certain how this all had began but probably it started in 19th century when local people began to put crosses here in the memory of family members who died in one of the battles of Polish November Uprising in 1831. The more crosses were put, the more people from different areas started coming to put their own crosses in different purposes. In 1993 Pope John Paul II visited the Hill of Crosses and declared it a place for hope, peace, love and sacrifice. During 2,5 – 3 hours drive from Vilnius you will also have a chance to admire beautiful countryside of central Lithuania.
