Home to Vilnius' thriving arts community and a wealth of historical buildings, churches, and streets, Uzupis claims to be the bohemian capital of the city. Though adjacent to the attractions of Vilnius' old town, the neighborhood possesses a distinctly different feel and charm thanks to its quirky nature--in 1997 it declared independence as "The Republic of Uzupis," a title it wears proudly. Cross the river (or, as the locals call it, "border") via one of several bridges and wander through the winding alleys of the mostly residential area, chock-full of trendy cafes, street art, galleries, and exhibitions. You'll discover a small square within, home to a large bronze statue of a triumphant angel. Don't miss the "Constitution" posted on the wall near the main entrance in multiple languages; it details the district's sometimes-paradoxical and humorous philosophy. A visit to Uzupis represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Vilnius itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

Little cute courtyards with storage rooms and tall grass I am reminded of my childhood. The art objects along the River are lovely and not pafosny, with good humour. Small churches in depth yards beckon to go and sit in silence. The wall with the Constitution in different languages is undoubtedly the highlight of the area. The district is the outgoing model, sweet nostalgia for the past, yet you can manage to grab and feel.show original

Много пафоса и предыстории, но простому туристу не ясно что делать. Может надо было искать экскурсовода? Или мы старые для таких мест?A lot of pathos and prehistory, but a simple tourist, it is not clear what to do. Can you had to look for a guide? Or we old for such places?show original
