Užupis Angel

  Užupio 9     30 Jan 2019

The tall pillar in the heart of Vilnius’ breakaway republic Užupis gave birth to a long-awaited angel on April 1, 2002, the official independence day of the wacky district. After a long and sometimes tedious unveiling ceremony the covers were finally lifted, and in a burst of billowing balloons the surprisingly beautiful figure of an angel was revealed, playing a trumpet and generally being rather awesome. The work of local sculptor R. Vilčiauskas, find it at the junction of Užupio and Malūnų.
