Užupis, an area in central Vilnius, has been hosting St. Patrick's celebrations for five years now, inviting Vilnians to dress in Green and mark the day of Ireland's patron saint.

Original Irish stew made by Anne and Taučius from Bistro 18, Vilnius and Guinness pie from Piano Man bar and Gringo pub, and special offers from Užupio kavinė were all available.

Vilnius has followed the lead of Chicago in greening its river to mark the day each year. Chicago greened its river last Saturday to mark the patron saint of Ireland’s day.
