Užupis is one of the oldest quarters of Vilnius, mentioned in historical sources in the early 16th century. Then it was a quarter inhabited by the poor population, which the residents of Vilnius tried to avoid for many years to come. However, with the passing of time artists started to settle there and turned Užupis into a real republic of artists with its own government, constitution, the anthem, traditions and festivals. The sculpture of the Angel of Užupis symbolises freedom and protects the residents of this quarter.
