No trip to Lithuania seems to be complete without a visit of the famous Hill of Crosses which is a pilgrimage site outside of Siauliai. Only few travellers take the opportunity to also spend some time in the delightful city itself.

On our way from Klaipeda to Krekenava we stopped in Siauliai for one night. With the help of the excellent Tourist Information we found some lovely accomodation and had a wander around the town. The next morning we headed off to the mysterious Hill of Crosses to soak up the unique atmosphere.

With about 130.000 inhabitants Siauliai is Lithuania's fourth biggest city. Beside the Hill of Crosses it offers many other sights like churches, statues and museums. Well worth seeing is also the Old City Cemetery.

    Looks like a neat small city. The accommodation was probably a dream coming true for you :-) Shame on those who caused the damage on the cemetery.

    Thanks for taking me on another interesting virtual tour in Lithuania. I liked the sculptures and the Churches, all are so different in design! You made me hungry talking about yummy crepes, haven't had one in a while!

    Really interesting - I confess I hadn't heard of the Hill of Crosses, but it looks an amazing sight. And I always like to see lots of street art as I think it says something about how cultured a city is :)

    Siauliai, as portrayed by you, sounds quite an interesting place. I wish we had given it a chance during our short visit. But as you say the main destination in the area seems to be the Hill of Crosses.
