An interesting fact is that Lithuania celebrates two days of independence - The Restoration of the State Day on February 16th and the Restoration of Independence Day on March 11. The Act of Independence of Lithuania was signed by the Council of Lithuania on 16 February 1918, proclaiming the restoration of an independent State of Lithuania (the Restoration of the State Day).

Everything and everyone, that day, is decked out in the national colors yellow, green, and red. To allow people to attend the events that will take place across the city, the public transport in Vilnius will be free on that day.
