Name Of The Season: Turkey

...115 m of the foot bathed in red, and 209 m of the top in white...

Standing at 324 metres in tall, one of the global landmarks in the world, the Eiffel Tower sparkles for Turkey!

As a part of the ongoing "Turkish Season" events in France, the Eiffel Tower was lit up with the colors of the Turkish flag red and white for 5-days began from Monday, Oct 5.

Breathtaking view of sparkling can be watched in this video*:

Amazing illumination will be ended up by tomorrow Sunday night, Oct 11th. Turkish Season (Turkish: Türkiye Mevsimi) will last through next March 2010 with various activities around the country if/when you happen into France for any reason.

Worth to mention.

The exhibition "De Byzance A Istanbul / From Byzantium to Istanbul: The Port of Two Continents" opens today at the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais, and will stay open for three months, until 25 Jan 2010. Interested in seeing the programme in full? Click here

While nine-month Turkish Season makes easier the culturally understanding and bringing people closer, I appreciate France's this gesture, a bearer of peace and friendship with all.
