Days to go:
The Observance of Proclamation of the Republic of Latvia commemorates the country's declaration of independence from Russia in 1918. This observance serves to recognize the struggles and sacrifices made by the Latvian people throughout history to attain and maintain their sovereignty, and celebrates their resilient identity and national pride. The occasion also aims to fortify the sense of unity and solidarity among its citizens.
Before attaining its independence, Latvia experienced a tumultuous history marked by foreign occupation and oppression, including the Soviet era when the country was under communist rule. When Latvia finally restored its independence in 1991 following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, it began integrating itself into the global community, culminating in its accession to the European Union in 2004. The Observance of Proclamation serves as a potent reminder of the union's dedication to political freedom, democratic governance, and social justice in all its member countries.
Celebrations of the day include cultural events, such as concerts, art exhibitions or lectures, speeches by Latvian officials, and gatherings and parties hosted by Latvian expatriate groups. The Observance of Proclamation of the Republic of Latvia takes place annually on November 18th, irrespective of the geographical location of the celebrations.
