Vilnius is the capital city of Lithuania and has a population of over ½ million people. It is known for its baroque architecture and cobbled streets. It is a bustling city with something for everyone from art, history, trendy bars and restaurants and street art. It wouldn’t be right to see so much of Lithuania without a trip to the capital!
The Hill of Crosses & Kaunas, Lithuania.
On our journey back to Kaunas we did a detour to The Hill of Crosses; located 12km north of the city of Šiauliai in northern Lithuania. The origins of the place are unconfirmed however the original crosses were thought to have been placed during the November Uprising or the Polish – Russian war of 1830-1831.
