Title ︎︎︎ The Hill of Crosses
Desecrated but never destroyed, set on fire but never burned down, the Hill of Crosses is a potent symbol of faith, hope, and freedom. For pilgrims, it is another must-visit location in Lithuania.

The Hill of Crosses near Šiauliai is a hill covered with millions of crosses. During the Soviet era, these crosses were removed by the authorities, but locals continuously replaced them. In 1993, Pope John Paul II prayed here, and he often mentioned the sacred site in his homilies and speeches. He later sent a crucifix to Lithuania which was placed on the hill, and today pilgrims begin and end their journeys at this location. Now people come here from all over the world to hang their cross or just to see this unique place.
