The Hill of Crosses is a unique, compelling landscape in the winter. The snow-covered ground and bare trees create a picturesque background for the thousands of crosses dotting the hill. It’s a beautiful sight and a great place to visit when the weather is chilly and the sun is low in the sky. You can’t see the Hill of Crosses from town; you have to come out and explore. Today the Hill of Crosses is a symbol of Lithuanian independence, and is visited by millions of tourists every year. The snow drifts high against the crosses, making for a beautiful winter scene.
