Uzupis, Vilnius

3.1
#3 of 6 in Neighborhoods in Lithuania
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.

  • It's called "the Republic of Užupis", or district. Although the name "Republic of" more fun, and unlike other similar amateur formations (as Christiania, for example) has no autonomy from the rest of the country. But nonetheless. There is a special atmosphere, interesting graffiti and stritart, an awesome Constitution in different languages (there are Russian and Belarusian). Interesting walk.

  • Nothing special, after reading on tripadvisor, we should view it, but it is an area of graffiti and I think very culture, a few restaurants, but we got a lunch at a restaurant that had a Danish menu

  • The texts on the wall, let the rights see here are also all funny rights between such as "a dog has the right to be a dog '. The lyrics are written in many languages, unfortunately not in Dutch. Furthermore, the environment very nice to explore and are there any other local attractions.
