Polish-Lithuanian celebration of the 230th anniversary of the Constitution of 3 May 1791 and Mutual Pledge of 20 October 1791

3 May anniversary

 

230 years ago, on 3 May 1791 the parliament of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth adopted the Governance Act known as the Constitution of the 3rd of May. Today, this legal act is recognized as Europe's first codified constitution, as well as the second oldest constitution in the world.

In order to ensure equal representation for the Polish and Lithuanian citizens in the bodies of the common state and to confirm a strong union between the two Nations on October 20th, 1791 the Mutual Pledge of Two Nations was adopted as an integral part of the Constitution of the 3rd of May.

On this occasion H.E. Zbigniew Czech, Permanent Representative of the Republic of Poland and H.E. Andrius Krivas, Permanent Representative of the Republic of Lithuania, have the honour to invite you to the piano recital celebrating the 230th anniversary of the Constitution of 3 May 1791 and Mutual Pledge of 20 October 1791.

On the virtual stage we welcome Ms. MŪZA Rubackytė, a renowned Lithuanian musician living in Geneva, who interprets works of emblematic composers representing the Polish and Lithuanian Nations: Fryderyk Chopin and Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis.
