Komi Republic Day (22/08)

Every year on August 22, the Komi people celebrate the formation of their national Republic (more precisely, the Komi-Zyryans, who differ from the Komi-Permyaks living in the Perm Territory).

On Republic Day, which is an official holiday and non-working day in the region (Law of the Komi Republic dated May 5, 2014 No. 30-RZ), solemn meetings, festive concerts and mass celebrations are held in many cities dedicated to the anniversary of the formation of the Komi Republic.

The capital of the Republic is the city of Syktyvkar.
