Hill of Crosses, Siauliai, Old Mill in Seduva
The Hill of Crosses near Siauliai is very unique place in Europe, visited not only by piligrims but also many tourists from entire the world. Where else you can find 500 000 crosses in one place. The hill of Crosses was formed on Jurgaiciai mound, which was considered a holy place. Now its one of the most visited sigts in Lithuania. Nobody knows exactly how many crosses are on the hill today, but it could be up to 500 000. Srosses were rased here since at least the 19th century and probably much older, the crosses were bulldozed by the Soviets, but each night people crept past soldiers and barbed wire to plant more, risking their lives or freedom to express their national and spiritual fervour. It is situated 220km from Vilnius and it takes 2. 5 hour to get there by car. On the way I suggest to have lunch in the restaurant which is in the nice old mill. If you are more than three persons write and I will adjust the price.
