Walk inside the old town, you can easily found a place called "Uzupis" along a disgusting river. This is a place gathered a group of "artist" selling their hand made stuffs, drawing pictures and singing there. The environment is not fancy, just have some old paintings hanging on the walls of the broken little houses. Roads insided the areas are... More

Place like from fairytale, full of colours, smiling people, lazy atmosphere and beautiful buildings, sculptures, monuments. Easy to missed out, so take free walking tour started in front of town hall at 12 pm.

Nice cafes, restaurants, gallaries and shops. The atmosphere here is very nice and calming. This republic had its own rules, one of them is: a dog had the right to be a dog. Isnt that just great?

We just wondered up to this "independent island" of Vilnius by mistake, we had heard that it was the "artists quarter"... lots of enthusiastic people opening cafes / bars / shops and restaurants in this very unusual place. We went while it was raining, but enjoyed the eclectic massing of houses, starting with the rococo double fronted terraces all the... More

It's a hidden gem in Vilnius. If we didn't take the Free Walking Tour, we would never know about it. The concept is really funny and creative. I would advise you go there with a guide to listen to stories, as stories are the soul of the place, not the place itself.

Worth a walk through but you need to have read up on its recent history or go on the Free Walking tour so you can fully appreciate the "republic." A must-do is to read their "Constitution" which is posted on a wall in several languages.

If your planning a trip to Vilnius you really should have this wonderful unusual neighbourhood of the city pencilled in as a must go destination on your trip. The atmosphere is very laid back and bohemian,think of MONTMARTE in Paris or FREETOWN CHRISTIANIA in Copenhagen ,if you've ever visited either of these area's ,it has a very similar vibe. It's...

Very fun, trendy, hipster neighborhood! It has a very different feel to it than the rest of Old Town, Vilnius and is set inside the curve of the river. It's very peaceful, chill, and fun to poke around in the little shops and cafes here. The statue of the angel blowing the horn in the center was mostly impressive because... More

Uzupis was nice to visit and the mermaid and angel are worth seeing as well as some of the excellent graffiti but I didn't get the vibe of Christiania in Copenhagen and it just felt a little run down in places. Worth a quick visit but nothing more.
