On October 9, 2013, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark accompanied by the Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Building, Mr. Martin Lidegaard, continued their three-day visit to beautiful Vilnius, Lithuania.
The day began with the crown prince and Mr. Lidegaard participating in the Danish-Lithuanian Business Forum held at the National Art Gallery. During the event the crown prince gave an important speech in front of various “…business leaders and decision-makers from Denmark and Lithuania…” and the President of Lithuania, Dalia Grybauskaite.
Thereafter, Crown Prince Frederik and Mr. Lidegaard visited the Danske Bank where the crown prince “…opened the competition for Children on ‘Financial Literacy.’”
In the afternoon, the crown prince visited the Vytautas Art Museum to view the exhibition, A Modern Royal Household. An hour an a half later Crown Prince Frederik arrived in the city center of Vilnius where he met up with the mayor, Mr. Artuas Zuokas. After a warm welcome and a couple of handshakes the future king of Denmark, Mr. Lidegaard, and Mayor Zuokas hopped rented bikes and took a cycling tour of the old city of Vilnius. Thirty minutes later and slightly sweaty the crown prince and company arrived at Vilnius University. Why? I have no idea. It was on their schedule/agenda/whatever its called.
Anyway, later in the afternoon Crown Prince Frederik unveiled a new plaque in the city center, and attended a gala reception as well as dinner at the Grand Duke’s Palace in the evening.
The end. 🙂
