After I left the Hill of Crosses, I started walking back to the bus stop. I was filled with awe and wonder and enjoyed the view around me.
It was peaceful and I enjoyed the quiet solitude that was around me. As I walked the 2 km back to the bus stop, I would stop and look back at the Hill of Crosses thinking to myself that this may very well be the only time I ever visit this place. A bit sad at that thought, but also grateful for the opportunity to have been here.
I returned back to the city of Siauliai and started doing some more sight-seeing of other locations I wanted to see.
First stop was Resurrection square.
I went across the street to the Discs of the Sun.
This was an interesting piece in the middle of the city. The sun is a big thing for this small city – Siauliai. The city itself has an interesting history that goes back to 1236, when it was founded. Yes, that’s right – 1236. You can read all about the city here.
Next travel post – another big church…
