Visit one of the most sacred places of Lithuania – the Hill of Crosses – where pilgrims from all over the world have been leaving crosses for centuries as a sign of their Christian faith.

Description

People from Lithuania and other countries have been leaving crosses here for a couple of centuries, showing faithfulness and devotion to the Christian community, Christ and his Cross. This is an expression of a spontaneous religiousness of the people, and it is not a symbol of a grief or death, but of Faith, Love and Sacrifice.

After the 3rd partition of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1795, Lithuania became part of the Russian Empire. Poles and Lithuanians unsuccessfully rebelled against Russian authorities in 1831 and 1863. These two uprisings are connected with the beginnings of the hill: as families could not locate bodies of perished rebels, they started putting up symbolic crosses in place of a former hill fort.
