Vilnius Private Tour: Uzhupis City Walking Tour
"Although Uzhupis (Užupis) is a vital neighbourhood in Vilnius City it beats to the rhythm of its own drum. As this neighbourhood is separated by a river from the old town it's name hails from a literal phrase “beyond the river” pronounced ‘Uzhupis’. Back in the day Uzhupis used to be a drowsy even rough neighbourhood but today it's an artists paradise and bohemian Vilnius getaway often compared to Montmartre in Paris or Kristiania in Copenhagen. Through the initiative of some Uzhupis residents
From EUR11.00
