Well, will we have in Uzhupise…

15 Февраль, 2015


Ужупис, Вильнюс, Литва.

No, нет, это не забористое ругательство и не заклинание такое, а вполне реальная виртуальная республика Ужупис! Владения данного «State» is один единственный одноименный район «балтийской жемчужины» – славного города Вильнюса.

Район объявил о своей «независимости» одновременно с выходом Литвы из состава СССР. But, первое, в отличие от второго всего лишь доказывает, что и прибалты могут похвастаться отличным чувством юмора. Еще бы. Ведь в недалеком прошлом район Ужупис был одной сплошной руиной, беспросветными трущобами и мрачным захолустьем, где никто из живых просто не в состоянии был обитать. Место изначально было неблагоприятным для развития здесь цивилизации – with one side – river, с другоймельницы. Резервация, so to speak. Здесь жили самые бедные люди Вильнюса, не имеющие возможности купить себе более респектабельное жилье и вынужденные годами лицезреть огромные трещины в стенах своих «крепостей». And then became the second world war, and the area is almost entirely depopulated, becoming its marginalized and marauders.


«New» life Uzhupisu "presented the" Declaration of independence of the State of Lithuania. Young Republic passionately wanted to declare yourself, How about a separate power. Lithuania desperately needed in attractions, which could earn. And then the Lithuanian Government drew their attention to small, nondescript Užupis, which has become a sort of miniature «Mecca» for creative people – artists, Masters of street art, musicians, Tramps…in General, all those, who poverty in honor. The new inhabitants of rajonchika fully transformed his gruff exterior, adding bright colors, flooding wall dilapidated houses works of art.

Сегодня в республике Ужупис можно насладиться видом целых «галерей» and «полотен» лучших представителей прибалтийского, и не только, артхауса. Чего здесь только нет! И политика, и спорт, и философия – literally everything can become the object of sparkling Street creativity.

This is a Museum – challenge under the open sky. And nobody confuses, that, under the beneficial power of art tucked all the same devastation, the same disharmony. However, from the aesthetics of decline has its fans – in Uzhupise can often be found underground lovers, a new generation of young artists, seeking inspiration and adventure on the fifth point; rebel students, wanting to challenge society, well, or just walk couples; teenagers in headphones, in a reverie of wandering on the bleak streets of the Republic of. As they say, to each his own.
