In honor of my new favorite neighborhood in Vilnius, Užupis. And I quote: The district has been popular with artists for some time, and has been compared to Montmartre in Paris…due to its bohemic and laissez-faire atmosphere. On April 1, 1997, the district declared itself an independent republic (The Republic of Užupis)…
Also notable are articles from the Constitution of Užupis:
Article 1: People have the right to live by the River Vilnelė, while the River Vilnelė has the right to flow past people.
Article 12: A dog has the right to be a dog.
Articles 16 People have the right to be happy.
Article 17 People have the right to be unhappy.
