Latvian Republic Day History
Republic Day, also known as Latvian Independence Day, Latvia's National Day and the Proclamation of the Republic of Latvia Day, commemorates the declaration of independence of the Republic of Latvia. On 18 November, 1918, a week after the end of World War I, Latvia declared its independence from German and Russian occupation. Like the other Baltic nations, the country would remain independent until the World War II.
Republic Day in Latvia is celebrated annually on 18 November. In 1940, when the Soviet Union occupied Latvia, the holiday was suspended. It was reinstated when the nation regained its independence in 1990.
