The Statehood Day used to be May 30, commemorating May 30, 1990, when the first post-Communist multi-party Parliament was constituted. There was some controversy in the public regarding which date is more suitable for the day of the statehood, but in the end June 25th prevailed as the Statehood Day, and May 30th is marked a minor holiday, one that is not an off-day.
