I only go to religious sites because they are culturally interesting and not for their purpose. This site is very unique but popular with the crowds. We went by car so it was easy to reach.

Everyone visiting Vilnius should visit Hill of three crosses. From this viewpoint you can see all Vilnius Old Town. There is couple of legends about the origin of three crosses monument so try to read it before visiting. Remember that the way up the hill is not easy and it might be too tiring for young children or old people.... More

Not really sure how to review this place. It's a nice park with a small river running around it and you walk up a hill to where the 3 crosses are. Great views over the city on a clear day but not much else to do up there.

The walk up the hill to the three crosses starts in a lovely park and then progresses in zig zags up the hill through fairly open trees. it's fairly steep although not difficult but it's worth it for the views of the city and river from alongside the crosses at the top.

We visited the place during the night. We went through a steep, dark path in the forest followed by concrete steps. There is no wheelchair access and the crosses themselves are not that impressive, but the city view is pretty neat.

Everything here is breath taking: both the view from the top, and the way up! Be prepared (physically and mentally) for a steep climb! That was definitely something I was not expecting once I started the "trip" but the view more than compensated

The hill of three crosses is on a hill next to Gediminas hill but on the other side of Vilnia river. Therefore, it's more difficult to reach. Apart from that you see it perfectly once up at the central Gediminas hill, which also offers better views, so there's really no need to go there. The monument up commemorates seven Franciscan...

It is a large hill that used to be the site of a wooden castle in medieval times. Currently a park with a monument composed of three white crosses. If it is a sunny, warm day it is a nice walk exporing the hill, but not really worth the ascent in the cold or wet weather. Crosses can easily be... More

Walked to the top of the hill. Excellent views of the town. Lovely in snowy weather and great walk back down through the woods along the river bank.

This is an easy walk from Gediminas Tower, but the climb up the hill to the tower is strenuous. I watched as several people were unable to complete it. In addition, there are several broken steps. All that said, being at the crosses is spectacular and worth the effort. The crosses have a tremendous religious implication and significance as well... More
