Create an itinerary including Uzupis
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.

  • Easy to find just over the bridge one or two nice little bars within easy reach and theres a gift shop at the foot of the bridge where you can buy trinkets to prove you have been to this location.

  • Take your time and walk around. Lots of restaurants and shops. We spent some time in this quaint neighborhood and ate lunch on the water. Very interesting.
