9 May – Europe Day

On 9 May 1950, Robert Schuman, the then Minister of Foreign Affairs of France raised the idea of a unified Europe in a declaration he read in Paris. He spoke of the need for a closer political and economic cooperation in Europe that would ensure peace for all the European nations. These ideas are considered the beginning of the European Union and 9 May has been celebrated as the Europe Day since 1985.

On 5-7 May, Vilnius will celebrate the Europe Day with a traditional restaurant fair in the centre of Vilnius which will invite its visitors to taste traditional Irish, Belgian, Greek, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Dutch, French, Romanian, Swedish, Hungarian and German dishes. The celebration will be accompanied by various sports activities and concerts.

The detailed programme of events in Vilnius is presented below. For information of Europe Day events in other Lithuanian cities and towns, please visit this page (Lithuanian only).
