Description
The first part of your day trip will take you to visit a site of silence and peace, for harmony and love, for respect and pity – the Hill of Crosses. A pilgrimage site about 12km north of Šiauliai in Northern Lithuania, It is presumed to have been mounted on the former Jurgaičiai – Domantai hill fortress, and is covered with more than 250,000 crosses, crucifixes, effigies, statues of saints and patriots. Lunch at the local restaurant.

In the next half after lunch, head towards The Narrow-Gauge Railway Museum situated in small Anyksciai town. The museum was established in the century-old complex of Anyksciai Railway Station and displays Skoda locomotive Kukushka, other narrow gauge rolling stocks and communication tools.

Next is to view the permanent exhibition of stone paintings of the folk artist Stanislovas Petraska (1935-2009). To preserve landscapes of his homeland and Lithuanian national symbols, the painter used the unique technique of painting with stone dust, which is characteristic only to this artist.

The Horse Museum demonstrates not only the agricultural tools and means of transport of the days of horses, but also exclusive exhibits of philately, warfare and wood carvings. Visit the century-old neogothic red brick Anyksciai Church with twin spires, designed by the architect Nikolay Andrejev.

Take the exclusive Treetops Walking Path, located in the famous Anyksciai Pinewood is the only treetop path in Eastern Europe. After spending some time here, you will be driven back to the hotel.
