Republic Day of Tunisia is celebrated annually to commemorate the vote to abolish the monarchy.
On July 25th, 1957, the first vote took place. As a result, Tunisia became a republic. Habib Bourguiba was elected the country’s first president (though he ended up ruling for 30 years).
The French captured Tunisia in 1881, and in 1883, the country became a French protectorate. The independence movement began in 1920.
The holiday is an integral part of the culture of the country. The country holds a lot of fairs and exhibitions theming Tunisian Republic Day to showcase and celebrate Tunisian food and crafts.
