Create an itinerary including Kryziu Kalnas
Packed with effigies and memorials thought to have begun after an uprising against the Russian Empire, Kryziu Kalnas plays home to nearly 100,000 crosses and represents one of Lithuania's most well-known sights. Bulldozed several times by Soviet authorities during their rule over the country, the hill has come back to life in the decades since Lithuania's independence. Visit the hill and wander the wooden pathways winding around the mound and you'll be surrounded by crucifixes of all sizes and styles. Don't miss taking an up-close look at the thousands of types of crosses carpeting the area; often larger ones are covered in hundreds of smaller examples attached with strings, rope, and rosaries. Feel free to add one of your own if you'd like to contribute to the hill's growth. Put Kryziu Kalnas at the forefront of your travel plans using our Jurgaiciai visit planner.

  • I could a very powerful energy there! I also felt blessed. It is a unique place which is worth visiting. You can pray there. You may bring your own cross.
  • This is one of those spot in middle of nowhere which will very surprise you. I can very recommend it. Scary but interesting. You can buy here your own cross( many types in offer) and you can leave it in this hill of crosses. Land around reminds me Montana in USA. Kind of farms land…
