#1 of 17 in Things to do in Siauliai
Packed with effigies and memorials thought to have begun after an uprising against the Russian Empire, Hill of Crosses - Kryziu Kalnas plays home to nearly 100,000 crosses and represents one of Lithuania's most well-known sights. Bulldozed several times by Soviet authorities during their rule over the country, the hill has come back to life in the decades since Lithuania's independence. Visit the hill and wander the wooden pathways winding around the mound and you'll be surrounded by crucifixes of all sizes and styles. Don't miss taking an up-close look at the thousands of types of crosses carpeting the area; often larger ones are covered in hundreds of smaller examples attached with strings, rope, and rosaries. Feel free to add one of your own if you'd like to contribute to the hill's growth. Put Hill of Crosses - Kryziu Kalnas at the forefront of your travel plans using our Siauliai visit planner.

  • Beautiful place. Hard to get to without a long drive, so easiest for travelers to come with a tour. We were here while there was a group of local school children. Great to see them playing around, and interacting without disrespecting the place.
  • This must be one of the most beautiful places in all Baltic countries. We went there with a tour. I recommend you to do the same or you can rent a car. A must see place
