Uzupis, Vilnius

3.3
#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.

  • In the river, in the park, on the wall, on the traffic signs... And, outdoor art is scattered here and there. Works are concentrated on the west side of the Republic (across the Vilnia River from the old town). At first glance, there are objects and graffiti that do not know whether the work or not, but for the work along the river, it is interesting because everything comes into view as "art", because there is a signboard with the author and the work name is put up near the entrance of the information center, It is easy to understand if you check it first.
