Located south of River Neris and housing one of the main Jewish communities in Lithuania, Uzupis is an artist district in Vilnius city center that declared independence in 1997 to form its own constitution. Today, it is renowned for its cobbled alleyways, graffiti-covered exteriors, and eccentric art emporiums in the streets. Tourists can also enjoy their time in underground eateries accompanied by music venues. The buzzing markets and exotic nightlife ensure that visitors to this sub-urban region thoroughly relish their time. This independent area is a great fun for all visitors and locals even though purely officially it is still a part of Vilnius city municipality.
