Why locals love it

The Republic of Užupis has an interesting story. Locals love it and many call it the heart of the Vilnius. A country within a country, it's a tiny mock republic founded by Lithuanian artists. It even has its own government and an army of 12.

Why you should visit it

Independence Day is April 1st. Make sure you ask for a stamp in your passport and read this constitution posted on the wall!

Special tip

Most of these rules seem funny but try to read between the lines.
