State Day celebrations

This marks the first time in history that Lithuania and its people will use all available modern means of communication to address Lithuanians and their descendants all over the world, the organizers say.

President Dalia Grybauskaitė will launch the campaign with a direct video invitation to Lithuanians around the globe.

The nation this year celebrates 100 years since the Council of Lithuania on Feb. 16, 1918 proclaimed the restoration of an independent state of Lithuania.
