Re-Established Lithuanian State turns 30 this Wednesday

Important | 2020-03-10

On Wednesday, March 11 Lithuania is celebrating its 30 years since re-establishment of the state. On this occasion, KTU Museum is inviting to visit a virtual exhibition about the University professors, the signatories of The Act of the Re-Establishment of the State of Lithuania. Also, our international students are talking about the traditions of celebrating independence all over the world – from India to Portugal.

“On this day, the people, who have done something significant for our country – athletes, scientists and others – are being given medals. Usually, we watch this ceremony on TV in the morning, and then people go out to have lunch, communicate and just enjoy the afternoon and a day off”, says Ana Rodrigues, KTU doctoral student from Portugal.

In India, people are visiting schools, and in Estonia, it is compulsory to eat a sandwich with black bread, marinated sprat, hard-boiled egg and green onion. More insights about what freedom means for people from different countries – in the video below.

We hope that you will be able to participate at some of the Lithuanian celebrations on this Wednesday. Enjoy the day off!
