What You Can Expect
It is believed that the first crosses were placed here just after the 1831 uprising, and today the hill is home to thousands of all different sizes and colours. Interspersed amongst the crosses are traditional Lithuanian koplytstulpis - wooden figures - and magnificent stone statues of Christ.
A really overwhelming experience!!!! The Lithuanians have suffered much over the last century and this just shows how their faith kept them going. At in a nice restaurant on the way back. A long ride but worth the trip!!!!
We enjoyed our tour, our guide Victoria was lovely with excellent English. She was very knowledgable and we all learned a lot about Lithuania from her. The driver was very capable and we all felt safe . Our lunch spot was very nice and Victoria recommended typical local food that we could try.
