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.
