      Lithuania National Day

    • February 16th is National Day of Lithuania, in commemoration of the founding of the state in 1918.

      Lithuania lost its administrative autonomy with the Union of Lublin in 1569. It was thus incorporated in the Polish kingdom. Then when Poland splitted at the end of the eighteenth century, Lithuania was annexed by the Tsars in 1795, but resisted all Russian attacks (anti-Russian uprisings of 1830-1831 and 1863-1864).

      Even occupied by the Germans in 1915, the Council of Lithuania declared the restoration of independent Lithuania and eventually declared its independence on February 16th, 1918.

      Polish National Day

    • The Polish National Day takes place on May 3 in honor of the first Constitution of this country which was adopted on 3 May 1791. The Polish constitution was written by the bourgeois and nobles of the four years diet under the rule of the last king of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Stanislas II.

      This constitution was the first constitution voted in Europe. It covered many essential points to reform the institutions and organize the life of the Polish people:

      - it recognized rights to farmers

      - it keeps the hereditary monarchy and its executive power

      - it declared the political rights of representatives

      - it limited the size of the standing army

      - it imposed land management.

      Since then, the 3rd May has become a yearly holiday celebrating the adoption of the Polish constitution.
