In 1863, people started to bring crosses to the Hill of Crosses. The installation of crosses was forbidden for many years (e.g., during Soviet times) and even destroyed a few times. But people didn’t give up and were bringing crosses secretly at night.
These days, everyone can bring his own cross here.
There is a very unique place in Lithuania – it’s called Hill of Crosses; located nearby Siauliai.
You can find there over 100 thousand crosses!
Crosses are brought by people of different nations and religions.
Lithuania has a humid continental climate, what means cold winters and mild, rainy summers.
I was visiting Lithuania in summer and the weather was just perfect, with no rain.
The country is quite flat, covered by forests and agricultural areas; and there not so many differences in temperatures. However, the coast area has slightly milder winters and colder summers (but you may not really notice any difference).
