"Presidential elections" Vilnius Local Custom Tip by Dabs

Vilnius Local Customs: 135 reviews and 161 photos


We stayed at the Barbacan Palace in Vilnius, every morning and evening we would see this van with a picture of Petras Austrevicius, one of the candidates in the current Presidential elections following the impeachment of Rolandas Paksas in April 2004 in a corruption scandal.

One morning I was sitting in the breakfast room at the hotel and saw him sitting on the couch speaking with another man. The best we could figure was that he was running his campaign out of the hotel.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
