  • Yerevan

The capital of the country and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. To see the magnificent panorama of the neighborhood, head to the Akhtanak Bridge. There are also the remains of the ruins of the Urartian fortress Erebuni. By the way, the same famous carpets can be found at the local market or in the Megheryan Karpet factory-museum. Armenians consider them a national pride.

  • Tatev Monastery

The attraction is located near the village of Tatev in the Syunik Marz. A real miracle rises above a deep precipice among the picturesque mountain landscape. The fortress was built in the IX century. Since then, the fortress has repeatedly suffered from enemy attacks and natural disasters. The last time the building was damaged by an earthquake was in 1931. However, the Soviet government did not want to carry out restoration work. The restoration of the historic site began only in 2010.

By the way, it was then that a beautiful asphalt and cable car were laid. The latter is the longest in the world. To fully enjoy the scenery around you, we recommend taking a ride on it.

  • Garni Canyon

Garni Canyon is located just 30 kilometers east of the capital. Vertical rocks and unique columns are locally called the Symphony of Stones. Residents claim that the creation of nature was formed as a result of a volcanic eruption.

According to the locals, every tourist should visit this place. We won't argue with them. It is really beautiful here. We can only add: visit the pagan temple of the same name while you're there. It is located near the canyon.

It is worth noting that the prayer room is the oldest in the country. It even houses the original copy of the Adi Granth, the holy book of the Sikhs.

We advise you to come here during sunrise and sunset. It is during this period that the rays touch the outer walls of the temple and illuminate it with a golden glow. Hence the name.

The shrine is open almost around the clock. The doors of the cathedral are closed only from 23:00 to 03:00.
