Sunrise at the Hill of Crosses - 2 countries in 1 day

Visit one of the most popular sites in Lithuania!
Visited by Pope John Paul II, this place has become an important pilgrimage site for Catholics. But please don't be intimidated by the fact that it is a religious site - everyone is welcome to visit this unique site - just as long as you respect the place and crosses that carry different stories with them!

You will have a guided tour of the place - hear the story behind it, how it all started! We'll point out some traditional Lithuanian crosses, explain some symbols that can be seen there and give you overall information about the country, culture and its history. After the guided tour you will have free time to explore the place by yourselves - take some beautiful photos and just to take it all in as it really is breathtaking!

Going there for the sunrise time will allow you to enjoy the place with no tourists around. Get the place for yourself! And save a lot of time as you will be back in Riga by noon if not earlier!
