Uzupis, Vilnius

(3.2/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Elegant, slightly mannered. Has its own Constitution of Užupis, placed outdoors in different languages. See the list of rights and freedoms. Many designer seats, compartment as show.
