Vilnius Calvary – The Way of the Cross

I always thought that The Way of the Cross of Vilnius Calvary was just a sacred place for pilgrims. But some years ago I found that it is a very beautiful place to relax and enjoy the nature too.

In a lot of Vilnius travel guides Vilnius is called a green city. In The Way of the Cross of Vilnius Calvary you can see the synthesis between nature and the new micro-district. You can find all kinds of people here: groups of friends, jogging people, parents with kids, people with their pets, bicycle fanatics or just young or aged people walking and enjoying the weather of the forest.

Of course, it is always possible to meet groups of pilgrims, who make a journey on foot to repeat the route to the cross Jesus Christ took. There is a sacred architectural ensemble of the Stations of the Cross, where all pilgrims stops to pray for the Lord. The most beautiful day in Vilnius Calvary is the Pentecost, when thousands of people climb the hills of this sacred place intoning poignant hymns.
