Full description
Your Republic of Užupis tour will begin with an introduction to the area, its history and how it came to be independent. Then take a walk along the main streets where you local guide will point out landmarks such as the Mermaid Statue and the Bronze Angel of Užupis and share stories about their origins.

Enjoy the laidback atmosphere of the area, admiring colourful street art as your local guide escorts you towards hidden gems that most tourists wouldn’t find on their own. As you wander, your expert guide will talk about the Constitution of the Republic, its history, its meaning and who is responsible for enforcing it. You’ll also pop into boutique shops that offer a weird and wonderful variety of goods, fabulous for picking up that authentic and unique gift or souvenir to take home with you.

A Lithuanian beer stop at one of your guide’s favourite local joints is included so you’ll stop for a drink amidst your exploring. Your tour will end near one of the ten bridges that belong to this rare bohemian enclave. If you want to continue exploring, your guide can point you in the right direction or give you directions back to your accommodation. Whatever you do, don’t forget to ask for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay.
