A newly married couple poses on the "Hill of Crosses" (Krizu Kalnas), in northern Lithuania at the pilgrimage site near Siauliai on Sept. 3.
The Hill of Crosses -- a small mountain of approximately 100,000 crosses -- is a curious phenomenon. No one manages or organises it -- it just is. The Soviets razed it again and again, only to have the crosses reappear. As Prof Viatanis Rimkis explains: "During the struggle for our freedom, the crosses became a weapon that was invincible."
Would dearly love to see this phenomenon.
