Hill of Crosses

A bus trip (lunch included) to one of Lithuania’s most awe-inspiring sights. The sound of the thousands of crosses – which appear to grow on the hillock – tinkling in the breeze is wonderfully eerie. Planted here since at least the 19th century and probably much older, the crosses were bulldozed by the Soviets, but each night people crept past soldiers and barbed wire to plant more, risking their lives or freedom to express their national and spiritual fervor.
Registration required 45 EUR per person
14:00-17:00

Contemporary dance and sound performance walking tour takes through old sites of 7 Klaipeda churches. This is a new, unexpected experience of the city, during which you will learn where first churches stood in Klaipeda, what they looked like, what kind of people lived on Market Street and what they thought. During the performance tour, each participant hears historic / artistic text, music and sound compositions through headphones, watches interpretations of contemporary dance in different city spaces, and is enabled to live out stories of the churches personally and expand his own limits of the understanding of the city.
