Hi there,
I am traveling to Riga. I'd like to see the Hill of Crosses in Lituania. Can I get there and back to Riga in a day or would I need to stay over night?

Is it fairly easy to find transportation (i'm assuming coach or train).

Riga to the hill of crosses in lithuania is do-able in a day its roughly 200km from Riga. The best option would be to hire a car and drive from Riga to the the hill of crosses directly. If you catch a bus it will probably take you to the nearest town Siauliai and then you have to get from there to the hill of crosses anyway. The site itself is not that far from the latvian border, maybe 80-90 km. Make sure you see a bit of latvia as well.

Good luck.

If you take a bus to Siauliai then you can just get a taxi out to the hill of crosses from there. If you go to the tourist office then they'll call the taxi for you and organise that they take you there, wait half and an hour then take you back. It's not that expensive, i think under 20 euros.
