Kirche
“St Anne’s Church, which has survived to the present day without changing for over 500 years, has become a symbol of Vilnius. At a closer look, one can see the letters A and M in the main facade of St Anne‘s. The letters A and M could stand for the Latin Ana Mater Maria or Ave Maria, i.e. „Saint Anne – Mother of Mary“ or „Hail Mary“. Some experts claim that the Pillars of Gediminas have been highlighted in the composition of the facade with the three towers of the church corresponding to the three pillars.”

“Explore Kalnų Park to find the footpath that leads up the hill of the Three Crosses. Climb the well-worn wooden stairs until you reach the grassy clearing on the hilltop. You’ll see the stark-white concrete crosses rising up from the grass. This monument was built in 1989 to replace the crosses that were torn down by Soviet authorities in 1950. The Three Crosses monument stands on a platform, from which you can enjoy stunning views of the surrounding cityscape and the other six hilltops around Vilnius. Try to spot the tall spires of St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church, the distinctive white bell tower of Vilnius Cathedral and Gediminas Tower on Castle Hill directly to the west. Visit the Three Crosses in the late afternoon to watch a breathtaking sunset. The Three Crosses are located on a prominent hill in Kalnų Park. The park is east of Vilnius’ Old Town. The ascent up the hill is steep in parts and takes about 20 minutes. Visit the monument for free at any time of the day.”
