Siauliai is the fourth largest city in Lithuania.   During the drive through the center, there will be a chance to see the famous Frenkel Villa, Church of St. Peter and Paul and meet the Millenium Fox and Golden Archer of the Sundial.  The famous Hill of Crosses will be your next stop, where the Pope John Paul II held the most highly attended mass in our country – during his visit to Lithuania in 1993. This old mound from the days of the crusaders has been decorated with thousands of crosses in every imaginable size and form. This has always been, as it is now, a place of pilgrimage. Today a veritable sea of crosses – hundreds of thousands of them – serves as a monument to Lithuanians’ devotion to their religion. You will learn about the cross making craft - one of the most unique Lithuanian crafts, included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List. After the visit in the Hill of Crosses, it is possible to stop for lunch in a traditional restaurant before making your way back to the capital city, Vilnius.

What people are saying about Vilnius County

The departure was absolutely on time, the bus stops in Trakai directly opposite the castle, you just have to walk over the bridge. We stayed on site for 2.5 hours, which is absolutely sufficient for a visit, lunch and a walk by the lake. The return trip was also on time. The driver was polite and drove very safely. On the way there we received an audio guide that was very detailed and interesting. On the way back you can enjoy the landscape. Absolutely recommendable for 20 euros.

I liked the excursion. If you like history and photography, you will enjoy it very much. I would have liked to stay a little longer to take the boat ride and have lunch but I managed to see everything within the agreed time.

Short and sweet. Buss will take you almost to the castle, you'll have two and half hours to explore, and then you go home. Two hours was enough for castle and a lunch. Castle itself was meh, but museum inside was good.

A convenient way to set up a tour to specific place. Mine was the Trakai Island Castle.

A nice little audio guide excursion to an impressive sight.
