    Panoramic monument
    Walked up the hill to the monument which provided a good view of a large section of Vilnius. The steps to the top are crumbling but easily negotiable. Works are currently underway to make it more accessible. It is free to visit. If you have a vehicle you can park half way up the hill.

    Hill of Three Crosses
    Standing atop the hill that bears its name, the Three Crosses memorial consists of three white reinforced concrete crosses that are visible from afar. This 12-metre tall monument has become a symbol of national identity, but the crosses themselves are often illuminated in different colours to commemorate special events for Lithuania and the world. So whenever you can see the monument while walking around the city after dark, take a look to see if it’s lit up in special colours.

    Hill of Three Crosses and amazing view
    Via a wooden staircase you can reach spectacular three white crosses up the hill. The original crosses from the 17th century were destroyed by the Soviet oppressors. From the hill you have a spectacular view over the whole city of Vilnius.

It’s not difficult to walk up the hill. Around 15 minutes’ walk you can reach to the top. Very clear direction along the route. Only 3 crosses there. You can see the old town from there. If you have plenty time in Vilnius or expecting some exercise, it’s worth to go there.

This is just another hill, overlooking the city.
What's unique about it, are the three crosses located on it.
Not really worth the climb.

Worth visiting for sure, it's easy to reach from the center with nice steps to go up. The view is very nice and picturesque.

If something possesses you to climb this please please don’t attempt the vertical steps , you may die , you may get half way up or down and discover you have vertigo .
There’s a road way up near the castle hill/river
It’s really cramped up the top so you’d be better just using the lift to the castle for pretty much the same view

Really interesting monument with a long, interesting history. Also some great views when your at the top! Please make sure though when your up there that your not climbing (or your kids) on the monument. A few people were and it’s not ok. This monument means a lot to many people.

There are a fair bit of stairs but it’s not to bad

It had snowed when we visited so it was an interesting trip up the hill to get to but definitely worth the climb and many steps! You get great views of the city from all angles and it doesn't cost a penny to see!

The Hill offers an incredible view over the city, particularly beautiful at night. The memorial these Crosses represent is also an exciting piece of the country and city's history.
