The Hill of Crosses, close to the town of Šiauliai, is a pilgrimage center. The tradition of laying a cross on the hill originates from the fights of the people for independence in the thirteen century. Nowadays the number of the crosses, statues and crucifixes is not precisely known, but it is believed that they are about 100,000 or more. It is amazing to walk among so many crosses symbolizing peoples hopes, wishes and prayers...
This Roman Catholic Church has a long history. It was planned to be built in 1918, but because of lack of money the project was held for a while. Christ's Resurrection Church was almost completed in 1940, but then, because of the War the building of the Church was used for a store and even for a factory in the period of Stalin. Today the Christ's Resurrection Church is a wonderful building, which is a church, museum and even a preschool. It is one of the most interesting attractions in Lithuania.
Curonian Spit is an enormous dune of sand with length of 98 kilometers and width of 4 meters.
