The Hill of Crosses is a site of pilgrimage near the city of Šiauliai, in northern Lithuania. More than 200,000 crosses cover this magical hill. Over the generations, not only crosses but also statues of the Virgin Mary, carvings of Lithuanian patriots and thousands of tiny effigies and rosaries have been brought here. This place became a sign of the peaceful endurance of Lithuanian Catholicism despite the threats it faced throughout history. At least three times it was bulldozed because of the political and historical situation in Lithuania, but people never stopped coming here and bringing Catholic religion related things. During the Soviet Union Lithuanians used it to demonstrate their allegiance to their original identity, religion and heritage. This place is very special for every Lithuanian. Hill of Crosses became even more popular and known worldwide in 1993 when Pope John Paul II visited this place and declared it a place of hope, peace, love and sacrifice. Not only local people but also tourists from all around the world is coming here to see this unique place and to feel this magical atmosphere. Book a tour from Baltic Tours and feel the harmony inside you and everywhere around. Don’t miss the opportunity to leave your cross here and come back to check it in few years!
