Well... i just could'nt walk through it without taking some photos






Ok finally we are in Užupis

LOL, you were at Užupis today? So I wonder why didn't we meet each other? I'll post some of my pics later in this thread, if you don't mind, of course

Btw, pics are great

A miejsce magiczne - jak tam będziecie - koniecznie, bo warto! A koniecznie zajdźcie na tamtejszy Cmentarz Bernardyński - mniej znany od Rossy, ale równie piękny i pełen pamiątek po wygnanych mieszkańcach miasta.

Nice pics! Užupis is one of my most favourite places in Vilnius.
BTW, what's up with the name of the thread? Is it some strange way of spelling?
