Lithuania Statehood Day, also known as the Coronation of King Mindaugas Day commemorates Lithuania's beginnings as a distinct, sovereign nation in the European landscape. This event holds great significance for the citizens of Lithuania, as it is a celebration of their unique cultural identity and the nation's long struggle for independence. Moreover, as a member state of the European Union, the Lithuanian Statehood Day carries special meaning for the entire European community, as it serves as a reminder of the shared Baltic history and the values of unity, democracy, and freedom that define Europe as a whole.

The observance traces its roots back to the 13th century when Mindaugas, the first and only King of Lithuania, was crowned on July 6, 1253, thereby establishing the then Kingdom of Lithuania. Mindaugas' reign marked the beginning of a cohesive and recognizable Lithuanian state, with the kingdom eventually growing to include modern-day Belarus, Ukraine, and parts of Poland and Russia. In the context of the European Union, this historical event is essential, as Lithuania's statehood is an integral part of Europe's cultural and political development, reflecting the common challenges and aspirations faced by the entire continent in the search for lasting peace and stability.

Various events such as cultural exhibitions and performances showcasing traditional Lithuanian dance, music, and arts take place in European cities with significant Lithuanian populations.
