Uzupis, the independant state ?!

Uzupis is well worth the visit. This "independent" artist town has some very interesting places to see. You can spend quite a few hours strolling around the streets of this area... read more

An unusual unique place filled with art and mystic, hard to explain air of strangeness. A charming area which I visit every time I travel to Vilnius (the city is a separate story - just love it!). When you enter Uzupis, there's a bar across the bridge with decent beer and food (both local), lazy service :) though - but... More

Uzupis is a country within a country. It has two churches, two bishops and they have their own creed. They also have their own currency. Reached by crossing one of several bridges over a small river you cross into a charming old town of twisting streets. Mostly private housing there are enough small shops to keep you interested if you... More

Republic of Uzupis is a really nice and interesting place. When you cross the bridge, it feels you are going into a different world. A place that has it's own constitution, small old town streets, shops, places to eat and pubs.

Nothing remarkable here, apart from a few painters along the river Vilnia. For the rest, it's just a not-well-kept neighbourhood.

This is a artist area and is mind blowing worth a visit. They made a constitution on 1st April 2001 worth reading. I think the world needs it. Superb place worth half a day.

I thought this part of town would be a tad raucous with more artsy graffiti but I found it no more colorful than other parts of Vilnius. I did enjoy walking through the Bernadine Cemetery and seeing the nice view over town.

Uzupis was founded on April 1rst and that tells it all. To enter this neighborhood it is mandatory to smile and you will smile often if you have a local guide to translate the meaning of the flag and the bylaws of this place. Don't forget to read the constitution printed on several languages.

It was worth taking a look, and the history of the neighbourhood is fun. However, it is not a very pretty part of the city, pretty average.

It is similar to Copenhagen's Christiania but a toned down version...it has lot of quirky art work and the constitution wall in several languages was quite interesting. Good area to spend an hour or two
