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.
