The Centenary of the Republic of Lithuania – can there be a better time to forget about all the problems, conflicts, bury the hatchet that still divide Poles and Lithuanians and together enjoy the Birthday Day of our common homeland?

The Polish Discussion Club invites Poles and Lithuanians for joint, merry and informal celebrations of the Independence Day of Lithuania which will take place on February 15 at 5pm at the Piano Man bar (Islandijos 1).

The famous Lithuanian historian Dr. Eligijus Raila and well-known Lithuanian writer Herkus Kunčius will be jocularly discussing the century of Lithuania and Poland, the meaning of February 16 and the legacy of the father of Independence, Jonas Basanavičius. The discussion will be moderated by journalist Jacek Jan Komar.

In addition, there will be Polish and Lithuanian dishes and drinks, lots of fun, interesting conversations and great jazz music from the interwar period performed by Vytautas Labutis and Andrius Balachovičius.

“We recommend our guests to come to the party wearing a costume or at least a detail that would somehow refer to the 1918-1940 period. The most inventive costumes  will be awarded valuable prizes. Let us all experience the interesting and mysterious interwar period for at least one evening!”- the organizers encourage.
