Remarks by President Dalia Grybauskaitė at the opening of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania

Nuotraukų galerija 1

Dear All,
The Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania is a symbol of Lithuanian statehood. It signifies the continuity of our state and the strength of our nation.
It is only by perceiving and giving meaning to the history of our state that we can expect national prosperity today and tomorrow.
It is symbolic that we are opening the door behind which issues important to the whole of Europe were resolved at a time when Lithuania stands at the helm of the European Union.
From the times of the letters of Gediminas to 2013, for 690 years, the door of Vilnius has been open to all Europe. I hope that this icon of our glorious past will again stand as a political, cultural and historical center of Lithuania and the Old Continent.
May the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania serve a palace for each and every Lithuanian and may it instill a feeling of ever stronger pride in our state and its history!
Dalia Grybauskaitė, President of the Republic of Lithuania
