The Hill of Crosses
"The Hill of Crosses near Siaulai is a memorial to the pain over those who gave their lives in the fight against Communism, in the 1863 revolution and in the Partisan war between 1944 and 1956. It all started when three graves were found after people killed in the 1863 revolution and crosses erected over them. It’s been adding ever since. The hill has about a million crosses, but as visitors continue to hang their own small crosses on the larger ones it is quite impossible to estimate the real number."
