Coronation of Duke Mindaugas; various Vilnius venues;

The celebration, dedicated to the coronation of Duke Mindaugas, the founder of Lithuanian State, is the national day. On July 6 1253 the first and the only one Lithuanian king – Mindaugas was crowned.

Thus Mindaugas, Lithuanian Great Duke, later becoming Lithuanian King, made the step towards the international acknowledgement of Lithuanian state in Europe. However, the coronation of king Mindaugas and duchess Morta became even a more significant achievement for Lithuania, when Lithuanian Diocese was established in Lithuania by the order of the Pope, and at the same time Lithuanian state also was formed.
