Užupis is a recognized district for artists and won the name of the most mysterious and romantic district of Vilnius.
Užupis is the city in the city. It is officially called the different republic in Vilnius city. Užupis is one of the oldest districts of Vilnius, mentioned in the historical sources as far back as the 16th century. But now this is the place for romantic, artistic soul. You can always find the painters or musicians sitting in the middle of district and sharing theirs ouvre. Everybody knows that Užupis is a recognized district for artists and won the name of the most mysterious and romantic district of Vilnius. Užupis is the artists’ “republic”, which has its own constitution, national anthem, calendar and map.
As I found some information about Užupis it says that: „It also has its President, Prime Minister, Ambassadors from many countries of the world, military force (consisting of 12 people), a bishop, two churches, the Bernardino cemetery, which is the oldest cemetery in Vilnius, seven bridges and a wonderful patron saint– the bronze Užupis Angel erected in its main square…“ (From Vilnius tourism information). You can feel the soul of Užupis. Every time I come here to spend some hours just walking down the old streets or the river bank I feel different I feel that my soul is charging with the positive mood. It is definitely the MUSTSEE place in Vilnius.
