OCTOBER 23, 2012
YEREVAN, OCTOBER 23, ARMENPRESS. “Armenia” sailing vessel will
continue staying in the Isle of San Lazzaro, Venice as an exhibit
for upcoming months. Notwithstanding, it has already been one year
since the sailing vessel stopped there, but the interest towards it
does not stop growing. In a conversation with “Armenpress” the head
of “Mesrop Mashtots” expedition Zori Balayan mentioned that there
are still many visitors who desire to see the sailing vessel. Zori
balayan said: “If the tourists come and see the sailing vessel, its
round-the-world rout, they become surprised and interested in details”.
The sailing vessel will remain in Venice before the construction of
appropriate unit in Armenia, which will last about one year. Zori
Balayan is thinking about another rout as well, but as a true captain
he does not want to talk about it: it’s a bad omen.
On May 28, 2009 “Armenia” sailing vessel started from the port of
Valencia in the Mediterranean Sea. On August 5, 2011 the sailing
vessel again appeared in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea ending
the first round-the-world navigation in the Armenian history.
