Agenda

Areni Wine factory: Areni Wine Factory is located in the village of the same name, the factory is famous for its wines. In Areni is located the church of Astvatsatsin which was built by the talented Momik.

The waterfall of Shaki: Shaki Waterfall is located only a few kilometers from Sisian. Enclosed in one of the cozy corners of Syunik, this waterfall is presented to the eyewitnesses with its indescribable beauty.

The monastery of Tatev: In addition to being a center of concern, the Tatev Monastery was also a strong political stronghold of the Kingdom of Syunik. Among the architectural monuments of Zangezur, Tatev's monastery is unique, it has no equivalent.

Khndzoresk: Khndzoresk is located at a distance of 8 km from Goris. The village is famous for its natural stone carpets. Old Khndzoresk is situated on the two slopes of the mountainous valley. There were no flat areas on those slopes for building settlements and for this reason people used caves. During the national liberation movement of Syunik (1722 - 1730) due to its inaccessible geographical position Khndzoresk served as a stronghold for Syunik. Armenian commander Mkhitar Sparapet is buried in Khndzoresk and next to him rest his son Aharon and the Lady of Syunik Gohar. Recently a unique structure - a "swinging bridge" has been opened in Khndzoresk the length of which is 160 metres, the height from the deepest point in the gorge is 63 metres and the width is 1,5 metres. 700 people simultaneously can go across this bridge weighing 14 tons. The bridge from where opens a magnificent view connects the two banks of old Khndzoresk.
