A popular destination for visitors looking to get away from Vilnius for a few hours, the small town of Trakai is located less than 30km west of the capital and is easily reached by bus, train or car. First mentioned in 1337 by the Teutonic Knights and known for its many different inhabitants both past and present, among them Lithuanians, Jews, Poles, Russians, Tatars and the mysterious and now almost completely extinct Lithuanian Karaite, today most people are drawn to the town for its fabulous Gothic castle, although closer inspection reveals many more things to explore when in town. The self-proclaimed “Republic” of Užupis is Vilnius’ Bohemian and artistic district. It has its own anthem, constitution, president, bishop, two churches, the Bernadine Cemetery – one of the oldest in the city -, seven bridges, and its own guardian called The Bronze Angel of Užupis, who was put in the centre of the district in 2002.
