Go on a pilgrimage from Riga - visit Siluva and Hill of Crosses!
Use a chance to visit one more country on your list while visiting Riga!
We can stop on the border between Latvia and Lithuania so you can take a photo with signs (optional).
At the Hill of Crosses, you will have a chance to purchase a cross (at very reasonable prices) from the local people, to leave on the hill or take with you as souvenirs. Please note that you can also bring a cross which you've made yourself if you'd prefer to do so!
At the Hill, we will take you on a guided tour so you get to know some stories and legends that will help you appreciate this place better. After the guided tour, you will have free time to explore the place by yourselves without the guide.
After the Hill of Crosses we'll be driving to town Siluva where you'll have a free time to visit the chapel which was built on top of the stone (it is still there in the centre of the chapel) where Blessed Virgin Mary appeared back in 1608!
After free time in Siluva, we'll be heading back to Riga.
