A small-sized oblong concave hill thickset with crosses is situated in the countryside, approximately 12 km north of Šiauliai, a short way off the railway line Šiauliai–Riga. This is the famous Hill of Crosses attesting respect and loyalty to the sacrifice of the Cross through which Christ has saved the people of all times and generations. The Hill of Crosses evokes not only the suffering and death of the Redeemer but also His resurrection and exaltation, and at the same time exaltation of every human through mystery of the Cross. Those who travel to the Hill of Crosses to pray and erect crosses testify to the strength gushing out of the Cross, inexhaustible hope, and faith in God’s love.
