After meeting and greetings in the hotel, driving to the Lithuania about 130 km to visit Hill of Crosses. After crossing Latvia -Lithuania border, possibility for coffee break. More 30 km and destination reached. The Hill of Crosses is a potent symbol of faith, hope, and freedom of Lithuania. Desecrated but never destroyed, set on fire but never burned down. Located near town Siauliai it is a hill (castle mound) covered with thousands of crosses made from different materials and in different size. During the Soviet era, these crosses were removed by the authorities, but locals continuously replaced them. In 1993, Pope John Paul II had a service here. He later sent a crucifix to Lithuania which was placed on the hill, and today pilgrims begin and end their journeys at this location. For locals and visitors alike, this is a place of hope and enlightenment, reflecting Lithuania’s historical and cultural traditions. On the Hill of the Crosses, everyone can place their own cross for every occasion in life. The main thing is to believe! About 30-40 minutes for photos and walking around. Specially beautiful and emotional in the time of sunrise and sunset.

Our guide was Bruno and he took us to several locations (Kaunas old town, Rumsiskes and the Pazailis monastery). He was an excellent guide and drove very well. He also picked an excellent lunch spot that we really enjoyed. The car was neat and modern and comfortable. A great experience and a great value. The tour operator was in touch if needed by phone and was responsive. Bruno came and met us at our hotel and delivered us back safely. Thank you!

The trip was an enjoyment. The weather was fine and the guide was good. He was very knowledgeable and explained the history to us. He also had a sense of humour. Thumbs up for him.
