Most visitors pass by Siauliai (pop. 130,000) on the way to the famous Hill of Crosses located in a one-horse village called Naisiai, only 12 km (9 mi) north of Siauliai downtown. But I decided to stop there to visit the cathedral and to eat something. Well, I can't say this city impressed me but the cathedral looked great, young locals I was talking to were very friendly and Lithuanian pancakes in Presto cafe were the best :-).
Why? Well, Siauliai was devastated many times through ages, the last time at the end of WWII. After the war, during Soviet occupation, the new city was built but mostly in Soviet style.
