Why locals love it

These three white crosses are visible from most parts of the city centre. I guess for some locals they are a sign of faith. The hill itself is pretty high and offers a great view of the city.

Why you should visit it

This hill likes crosses – the first was built in the 17th century to commemorate monks martyred in the 14th century. Today, three giant crosses built in 1989 to replace the ones that were destroyed under Soviet rule, sit at the top of the hill. It's a great place to enjoy a view of the city.

Special tip

There are two ways to reach the statue – if you come here by one path, go back via the other.

The view is excellent, even higher than from Gedimino hill. I came from the tennis court side, by crossing the small pedestrian bridge. It was a good cardio training and no tourists at all :D

There is a challenge to get up the hill, but once you're there - wow!! The view, the crosses, it just blows your mind

Good place for panorama over Old town, Center of Vilnius. A touchy history of the monument.
