Itinerary

Day 1Karmravor Church - Medieval fortress Amberd -

Departure from the hotel. A professional, experienced driver in a comfortable car picks you up from the hotel and your unforgettable journey begins.

 

Karmravor Church in Ashtarak. We start another day in Noah’s Land with a historical journey. Karmavor is a small graceful church made of brownish-red Armenian tuff that will not leave you indifferent. Despite its diminutiveness, which, by the way, is explained by the fact that the church belongs to the ancestral princely tomb, Karmravor is able to completely reboot you with its sacred, pure energy. The unusual atmosphere of antiquity is especially enhanced by the medieval Armenian cemetery, peeking out from behind thin layers of cultural layers.

An interesting fact: the name of the Karmravor church comes from the Armenian word “կարմիր” (karmir), which means “red”. This is connected with a very old legend about three sisters who threw themselves into the abyss because of unrequited love (one of them was wearing a red headscarf). Our guides will tell you the full story.

 

Medieval fortress Amberd. Now let’s move to the 7th century, when almost the entire territory of Greater Armenia was under the yoke of the bloodthirsty Arab caliphs, and the Armenian people needed hard-to-reach mountain fortresses, one of which was Amberd. You will walk through the ruins of an ancient eastern castle, where life was once in full swing – the princely persons majestically stepped along the corridors, the nobles weaved their intrigues, and the servants in a constant rush were busy fulfilling the endless orders of their masters.

Interesting fact: The name “Amberd” comes from the Armenian words “amp” – “cloud” and “berd” – “fortress” and means “a fortress that is higher than the clouds”

 

Church of St. Mesrop Mashtots. Last in number, but not least, is the church of St. Mesrop Mashtots in the village of Oshakan. This small cozy village is known throughout Armenia as the land guarding the remains of the great thinker, the creator of Armenian and Georgian writing – Mesrop Mashtots. Once upon a time, in the 5th century, Mashtots wrote the most unique Armenian alphabet and made a huge contribution to the development of the Armenian language, which is still considered one of the most advanced in the world.

An interesting fact: the Sanahin monastery complex is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

 

Return to Yerevan.
