The "Republic of Užupis" - a nice, little and very special republic in the middle of Vilnius

As it happened in many towns also Vilnius has its own kreative district and as mostly it started in a abandoned district of the city where no one wanted to live, so some artists went there and not just turned the ugly and shabby place in a really nice and hip district. No they went there and created their own republic. The "Republic of Užupis". As a own country should they have their own currency, well at least at one day a year on their national day (on April fools day), their own parliament and recently their own constitution as well. A fun, creative and laid back place in Vilnius, surely worth a visit.
