On 23 April 1919, the first representative body elected by the people – the Constituent Assembly – convened in Estonia. It made many decisions that laid the foundation for our state. Every year, the Riigikogu celebrates that event with an Open House Day when you can have a look at the work of the parliament, the architecture of Toompea Castle, the working rooms of the President of the Riigikogu, and other official rooms of the Castle.
