Tour description provided by Viator

Discover Siauliai's remarkable Hill of Crosses on a private tour from Vilnius. Just a short drive north of Siauliai, the Hill of Crosses is home to thousands of crosses left by pilgrims over the centuries.

Visit the Hill of Crosses near Siauliai, where the Pope John Paul II held the most highly attended mass in the country during his visit to Lithuania in 1993. 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.
