Uzupis, Vilnius

3.1
#15 of 168 in Things to do in Vilnius
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.

    An area some time ago abandoned reevaluated by a group of artists that made up the Republic of Uzupio and even its Constitution. Aside from what the quarter unfolds around a small river, has very nice views and is lined with pubs, restaurants and cafes. Very pretty.

    Our guide showed this special "Republic" in the middle of the city of Vilnius us Cathedral, historic buildings and parks, where the Constitution in many languages behind the "Turnpike" on the walls is attached, where is the "coat of arms", so that no bribe money in it can remain, and where the policemen on horses riding, there is an open hand a cheerful atmosphere. Artists, traditional food retailers restaurants and Cafés and plenty of authentic acting life impressed us much. Highly recommended!

    District with the idea of a Bohemian flavor so grateful for visitors. However, I can not say that this got. There are artists, or accompanies the architecture. The Constitution already written in 27 languages continues to be a comic story.
