The Hill of Crosses in Siauliai, Lithuania was the first stop on our first family road trip that we recently took from Vilnius to the Lithuanian coast. This destination had been on my bucket list since J and I first decided to move to Lithuania. I'm really glad we finally made the visit because the sheer number and variety of crosses on the hill was impressive.
The Details: Visiting the Hill of Crosses is free. If you'd like to add a cross to the hill you can bring it yourself or purchase a cross from the gift shop. We had a bit of a problem with using the GPS to get there (Google Maps is correct though!). On Tilzes Street (aka A12) go towards the Peter and Paul Church, pass the church, and continue down that road. You will pass a few graveyards and the see the gift shop, tour buses, and a parking lot on your left. The Hill of Crosses is slightly further and on the right hand side.
With Children: If you want to walk to the top of the Hill of Crosses you should pop your baby in a carrier and leave the stroller in the car. The walk isn't terribly far and the hill itself is not stroller friendly (we took turns going to the top).
