Restored Lithuania celebrates 100

    Restored Lithuania celebrates 100

    This year, on 16th of February we are celebrating the birth of modern Lithuania. In 1918, there was established an independent, modern state of people, which had to be ruled by democratically elected government. As well as it had to symbolically revive Lithuanian statehood tradition that was upheld in 1253-1795. This date is like a bridge that connects Lithuania, born on 6th of July, 1253 and restored independent Lithuania on 11th of March, 1990.

    The building of the modern Lithuanian state in 1918 was based on the principles of the equality of all, as well as the freedom and prosperity, and this is why all the people of the country and Lithuanians living abroad, having chosen to be free, for the first time in the history of Lithuania became the creators of their state, and later on, during the years of the occupation – the guardians of its tradition.

    The celebration of Centennial invites us to reflect on what country and nation created during these 100 years and what goals have to be set for the upcoming Centennial.

    Let us celebrate the occasion and take an active part in the events and programs in Lithuania and abroad. For more information about the Centennial, please read here http://www.lietuva.lt/100/en.

    On this occasion, the Embassy of Lithuania to Italy has prepared a rich cultural programme. It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate actively in our events throughout all of Italy!
