Save the date for the Balts’ Unity Day 2017 in Palanga!

14 July 2017

Would you like to find-out more about cooperation in cross-border area of Latvia and Lithuania, and at the same time to spend an active day outdoors? Then join the cycling event that will be organised by our Programme on 23 September, in Palanga! The event will be organised as a part of Balts’ Unity Day 2017 celebration.

The cycling event will start at 11 o’clock, and during it participants will bike for about 30 km from Nidasciems, Latvia to Palanga, Lithuania. On their way the participants will have to answer quiz questions. The event will be open for public, free of charge, and everyone is welcomed to take part. More information on the route, as well as online registration will be available in the coming weeks.

Already traditional Balts’ Unity Day is an annual event celebrated to commemorate the battle of the Sun of 22 September 1236 when Lithuanians and Semigallians defeated Livonian Brothers of the Sword. This year it will be organised on 23 September, and will be hosted by Palanga municipality. The festivities will run for the whole day in various places/venues in Palanga giving you an opportunity to enjoy a host of cultural, sporting, culinary and intellectual activities. The programme of the celebration will be available closer to the event.
