How do you describe Užupis’ bohemian way of life in one manifesto? Take a look at the Užupis Constitution to find out. Its 41 articles will help you understand what goes on in the heads of locals - 'Everyone has the right to be unique' is indeed true in the neighborhood. The constitution was written by Romas Lileikis and Tomas Čepaitis in just three hours and published on a plaque on Paupio Street.
Now translated into more than 50 languages, the constitution gives visitors a sense of the rules the locals of Užupis swear by. Because, 'Everyone has the right to live by the River Vilnele, and the River Vilnele has the right to flow by everyone.'
