“Famous places in Lithuania”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you haven't visited Hill of Crosses in Lithuania its mean that you haven't visited the mst famous in the World places. Lots of people believe in the God and they pray and leave the Crosses at this hill and visit this place as often as they could..... This is tradicion to visit on the wedding day or Christening day or bring your guest there..
Many years ago a Pope John Paul II has a mass at this sant place where people from all world come and pray with him together.

“Great unusual place”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Name says it all, it's a hill with crosses, however the number and scale of crosses is incredible and worth exploring for half an hour or so.

“Worth due to the religious meaning...if you are around”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

PROS:
- the religious meaning
- The atmosphere
- There´s a special altar made when the visit of Pope John Paul II in 1993.

CONS:
- In the middle of no where
- Location

SHORT REVIEW:
- On a business trip between Riga (Latvia) and Šiauliai (Lithuania) with a local business partner, we stopped here to have a look, but the weather was terrible, so was not possible to leave the car.

DO I WILL RETURN?
Maybe not, one visit is enough.
