The 230th anniversary of the Constitution of 3 May and the Mutual Pledge of the Commonwealth of the Two Nations

Created: 2021.04.29 / Updated: 2021.04.29 21:12
    The 230th anniversary of the Constitution of 3 May and the Mutual Pledge of the Commonwealth of the Two Nations

    The Parliament of the Republic of Lithuania declared 2021 as the year of the Constitution of May 3rd  and the Mutual Pledge of Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth. This year Lithuania and Poland commemorate the 230th anniversary of the Constitution of May 3rd and the Mutual Pledge.

    The Constitution of May 3rd was the first written Constitution in Europe and the second written in the world. The adoption of the Constitution of May 3rd served as a proof of the political maturity of the Polish and Lithuanian elite and introduced an innovative social system rooted in an innovative school of thought in law. These values were reiterated in the Mutual Pledge of the Two Nations, passed by the Four-Year Sejm on 20 October 1791, as the law implementing the Constitution. The Mutual Pledge consolidated the power of the multinational community formed on the basis of the republican mindset.

    On this occasion we are inviting to visit Exhibitions dedicated for Constitution of May 3rd and watch concerts and other events via internet. We note that the broadcast of events is indicated in Lithuanian time.
