54 | The Country You Know Nothing
This week, I released a video -> The Most UNDERRATED Country in Europe | MUST Visit. I'd love to hear your thoughts! 👂 👀
Let's get down to the most important fact about this country. It was once the largest European country. Going back to the 15th century, it was a Duchy led by an iconic duke and their territory included parts of today’s Russia, Belarus, Poland, and Ukraine. ⚔️
This once expansive empire slowly shrank after joining forces with Poland to form the a Commonwealth union but centuries later being overtaken by the Russian Empire. This country became part of the Russian Empire. Their language was banned. One of the oldest in the languages in the world, banned. 🧠
Germans and Russians occupied this country for many years during the World War I and II committing genocides, deporting their people and taking their freedom away. 💣
But something magical was about to happen. On August 23, 1989 when 3 brother countries formed a peaceful protest against the Soviet Union. Approximately 2 million people formed a 600 km human chain across all the 3 countries. 🙏🏼
This led to this country's independence on March 11, 1990. The first of the Soviet republics to do so. 🕊️
If you know what this country is without Google, then well done, that's impressive! If you still don't know, watch my video. 🤫
Enjoy your Sunday and have a great week!
