The City of Tsaghkadzor – a small Olympic town not far from Yerevan is approximately an hour’s drive away. It is also called the Armenian Switzerland, as it is surrounded by dense mountain forests. The name of the city is referred to as “the gorge of flowers” since it is blooming with an variety of beautiful plants. According to the legend, these flowers were torn from the Pahlavuni princess’ garden and scattered over the land by the wind. It is also home to the 11th century monastic complex of Kecharis, specially built by the royals to honor the 1000th anniversary of Jesus Christ.
Tsaghkadzor is also popular for its fresh air, which is known to have indisputable health benefits. This is the main reason why the Olympic training grounds have been built in this location since the Soviet period, providing training opportunities for athletes from all over the globe after renovation. Additionally, Tsakhkadzor has become Armenia’s ski center during the winter months.
