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.

  • Visited the area on the recommendations prochinannym online, differences from the old city did not see because of the sirens around the bridge to try to get here.

  • A jump in the years 70 at the time of free love, disputes and hippies. Filmed between the lanes and facing the Windows of various artists. This Was proclaimed independent and which houses a population naive worth visiting

  • Definitely interesting to visit. You can even get a stamp on your passport at the "Barliament" just as you enter. The Constitution was the best part - we thought that was great and funny!  more »
