30 years ago, on 11 March 1990, news about Lithuania’s restored independence spread throughout the world. On this day, Lithuania took a new step and reinvented itself as a country merging its traditions with wonderful new opportunities. Taking the time to celebrate freedom of expression, creativity, and imagination is a perfect way to rejoice in the country’s independence.

The gourmet celebration will end on another important day for Lithuania – 6 July is Statehood Day, which serves to commemorate the coronation of Mindaugas in 1253 as the only King of Lithuania.
