Tour to The Hill of Crosses Near Šiauliai

 
In 1993 Pope John Paul II visited the Hill of Crosses. Since then, not only the worshippers, but also the tourists, wishing to leave here a cross of their hope, visit this temple. The Hill of Crosses is located 250 kilometresfrom Vilnius, near Šiauliai.  The Hill of Crosses is the spiritual temple of many Catholics. Crosses, “springing” in this place, for the first time were mentioned in the written sources in the 19th century.
The Soviet authorities tried to destroy the Hill of Crosses, however unsuccessfully. Today the torment, hope, and thanksgiving of the people are commemorated by about 100 thousand of various crosses from nearly all countries of the world. In 2000 the Minorities Monastery started operating at the Hill of Crosses.
