Konstitucija.jpg

Today, October 20, marks 230 years since the essential amendments to the 3 May Constitution - the Mutual Pledge of the Commonwealth of Two Nations. It testified the mutual commitment of Lithuania and Poland to respect and nurture the tradition of historical independence, and inspired future generations to fight for the independence that Lithuania and Poland regained in 1918.

The Constitution of the Commonwealth of Two Nations was published on May 3, 1791, and it was the first written Constitution in Europe and the second in the world (after the USA). The Constitution was translated into Lithuanian and became the first political and legal document in Lithuanian.

Currently the manuscript of the Constitution can be seen at the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania in Vilnius in the international exhibition "TO KEEP THE HOMELAND ALIVE: Lithuania and Poland in the Epoch of the 1791 Constitution".

We also invite you to watch the Polish documentary “May the 3rd, That is Today” (by Cyprian Demianiuk): https://vod.tvp.pl/video/trzeci-maja-czyli-dzis,trzeci-maja-czyli-dzis,53611988. The film is subtitled in English.
