History:

The beginnings of the ski jumping hill in Vilnius at the stadium under the Góra Trzykrzyska (Trijų kryžių kalnas), also appearing in the sources as a "hill on Antokol" (currently Antakalnis district, former Antokol, does not cover this area), date back to 1924. From the beginning, local ski jumping was related to the military community. The original hill allowed for 25-meter jumps. In 1934 there was a significant reconstruction of the facility, which gained a modern, reinforced concrete inrun tower - allowing to jump 35 meters. The opening took place in January 1935, and the inaugural competition was won by Jan Bochenek from Zakopane, ahead of the famous Stanisław Marusarz.
After the Second World War (when Vilnius, formerly within Poland, became part of the USSR), the ski jump was rebuilt once again, in the 1960s plastic mattings were placed on it. Currently, the remnant of the object is a stone take-off and concreted landing slope covered by plants.
In Vilnius there were also two other hills - a small, primitive hill in Belmont (the 1920s) and a post-war ski jump on Antokol (in Sapieżynki), which was planned to be enlarged - but it did not happen.
