The President of Lithuania was given a tour of the CCA Galleries, observed the panorama of Yerevan and Mount Ararat from the outdoor Three Divers’ Terrace on the Cascade and signed the Center’s guestbook. “This is a wonderful monument for culture, for the Armenian people and for the future”, says President Grybauskaitė’s entry in the guestbook.

The President of Lithuania is currently paying a working visit to the South Caucasus countries, as the head of the OSCE chairing country. During the two-day visit in Armenia, Dalia Grybauskaitė’s agenda for cultural visits included the Cafesjian Center for the Arts.
