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.

Kryziu Kalnas Reviews
This is a must-see stop in the middle of no-where. Not one hill, but two little hills completely covered and surrounded by thousands and thousands of crosses. I thought this would be a quick stop... more »
It isn't really something that spectacular, only interesting if you are quite a religious person, otherwise you won't be interested in it. more »
Beautiful place. Hard to get to without a long drive, so easiest for travelers to come with a tour. We were here while there was a group of local school children. Great to see them playing around, and interacting without disrespecting the place.
This must be one of the most beautiful places in all Baltic countries. We went there with a tour. I recommend you to do the same or you can rent a car. A must see place
