The Hill of the Three Crosses

These next days I'll show some of the photos I took while visiting Vilnius in Lithuania this summer. The first one is of one of the city's landmarks, The Hill of the Three Crosses. These white concrete crosses were erected in 1989 to replace the ones blown up by the Soviets in 1950. They are a memorial to seven Franciscan friars killed here by pagans during the crusades in the area.
