The Hill of Crosses in Siauliai, Lithuania, is strangely beautiful. And no one knows how it got there.

They are 100,000 crosses, on a small mountain, creating an amazing view. It is also a great illustration of the concept of power to the people.

The Soviets have apparently taken it down time again and again, only to have the crosses reappear. Stats for Guerrilla Sacred Sites Trending: Older & Average
