Lithuania Independence Restoration Day


Lithuania Independence Restoration Day

33 Years We Are Free!


The day of restoration of Independence of Lithuania is a Lithuanian national holiday celebrated on 11 March in commemoration of the Act of the Re-Establishment of the State of Lithuania that the Constituent Assembly signed in 1990.

“On 11 March 1990, the Act on the Re-establishment of the Independent State of Lithuania adopted by the Supreme Council of the Republic of Lithuania stipulated that the execution of the sovereign powers of the State of Lithuania, abolished by foreign forces in 1940, is re-established, and henceforth Lithuania is again an independent state. This Act is a crucial document for Lithuania, which opened a new page in its history after the fifty-year long occupation and annexation by the soviet powers, as well as the efforts of the nation to preserve the spirit of freedom.”
