"Next year, Lithuania will celebrate the centennial of the restoration of the state and Latvia will celebrate the centenary of its statehood. This year, we are sending a Centennial Thank You video and a simple but sincere traveling greeting to the Latvians on the eve of the 99th anniversary of independence," Neringa Vaisbrode, coordinator of Lithuania's Centenary Program, said in a press release.

The first festive coach departed for Riga at 10 a.m. on Friday and two more are scheduled to leave on Saturday, at 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. On their arrival in the Latvian capital, passengers will hear congratulatory messages from well-known Lithuanians.
