WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE TOUR:

We invite you to spend a day visiting the Hill of Crosses, probably the most iconic sight of Lithuania, as well as other little known corners of our beautiful country!

Situated more than 200 kilometers away from Vilnius, the Hill of Crosses is one of the most mysterious places in Lithuania. For almost two hundred years people have been bringing crosses here, asking for miracles. Throughout history there has been several attempts to destroy the Hill but it was always rebuilt larger. Those who destroyed it would become sick or even die!

On the way to the Hill of Crosses, we will visit a park, dedicated to the Lithuanian partisans (forest brothers) and a house of book smugglers (a profession unique to Lithuania).

Young and friendly guides will show you beautiful places that you wouldn't think of stopping by and will tell you intriguing stories that you won't find in any books.
