Description

Take a day tour from Riga to the Hill of Crosses, the famous Jurgaiciai Hill, located 12 km north of Siauliai. This authentic monument of history and religious folk art is the best repository of Lithuanian cross-making art and inspires with its peace, spirituality, authenticity, and sacred nature. The legendary stories about the beginning of the Hill are interesting as well. After crossing the border between Latvia and Lithuania you will be offered to stop for a photo session. At the Hill of the Crosses, the guide will tell you the history of this unique place and how it came to be. On the way back, we recommend passing through the local town of Jelgava. This is a unique opportunity to compare the locals' lives in the capital and a small town. Additionally, during this tour, you will be provided with excellent places to have lunch with local cuisine.
