Kaunas

Day 3

The rest of the day in Kaunas will tell you how it felt to live in independent Lithuania between World Wars, and how this vibrant city lives today. Kaunas is like a younger brother of Vilnius. Sometimes it seems to be in the shadows of the capital. But make no mistake - this is a superficial paradigm – Kaunas is a very vivid both in history and now: culture is thriving, and it’s always been the innovator vs Vilnius – same 100 years ago – same it is now. See the city and some top sights around, that are usually skipped by others. Main locations: Kaunas Old Town, Kaunas New Town, Zaliakalnis district

Hill of Crosses

Day 4

Start the day by hiking up the Hill of Crosses – a must visit site in Lithuania – and be fascinated by the sight of 100.000 crosses built and brought to this magic place by pilgrims of all religions and faiths. The Hill of Crosses is one of the most extraordinary sites in Lithuania. The old 14th century hillfort is covered in more than 100.000 crosses that symbolize Lithuanian nationalism and beliefs. Some of the crosses are devotional, while others are memorials to many people deported to Siberia. They vary greatly in size: a few are finely carved folk-art masterpieces and some are accompanied by mournful statues of the Virgin Mary. This is definitely a place where you will learn and better understand the local community’s difficult past, learn of its unshakable faith, and feel hope for the future.
