Program – October, 2009 (eng)

WHAT´S UP?

9 October 1829 is important date in Estonian climbing history. On that day Estonian scientist and future rector of Tartu University Johann Jakob Friedrich Wilhelm Parrot (1792 – 1841), ascended to the summit of Mount Ararat (in Turkey known as Agri Dagi). On this occasion Estonian Embassy in Turkey organizes with its partners an exhibition in Ishakpasa saray on 4 October, 2009 introducing the life and activity of J. J. F. W. Parrot. The next day, on 5 October, 2009, team of Estonian and Turkish mountaineers will depart from Doğubeyazıt to reach the summit of Ararat on 9 October, 2009 – exactly 180 years after Parrot. The partners of the event are Estonian MFA Bureau of Culture, Agri Culture and Tourism Directorate, curator of the exhibition Erki Tammiksaar, Estonian Ramblers´ Association, Turja Tour etc.
