Tunisia Independence Day (20/03)

Every year on March 20, in the northernmost African country - Tunisia, which officially bears the name of the Republic of Tunisia, a big public holiday is celebrated - Independence Day in Tunisia.

The historical path of Tunisia to independence is very interesting. At the very beginning, the country was part of the Carthaginian Empire. According to legend, the Phoenicians founded the city of Carthage in 814 BC. Over time, it became the center of a powerful empire.

Starting in 264 AD, Carthage waged wars with the Roman Empire, as a result of which it was defeated and for seven centuries was part of the Roman province of Africa.
