Itinerary

Day 1Lake Sevan - Hayravank Monastery - Noratus - Return to Yereva

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

 

Lake Sevan. You are met by the most valuable treasure of the natural treasury of Armenia – Lake Sevan, capable of making every traveler fall in love with its blue waters. Sevan is considered the largest mountain lake in the entire Caucasus and Transcaucasia. Since ancient times, Armenians have been accustomed to call it the Geghama Sea.

An interesting fact: Sevan is the second mountain lake in the world in terms of fresh water reserves, second only to Lake Titicaca.

 

Hayravank Monastery. On a small peninsular area there is a medieval temple Hayravank and its “needle-embroidered” khachkars. Here, every pebble exudes the spirit of antiquity, the unique view of the lake is crazy with its purity and beauty.

Interesting fact: The monastery saved the inhabitants of the coastal village from the bloodthirsty Tamerlane in the 14th century. According to legend, after the prayer of the priest, the Armenians persecuted by Tamerlane turned into doves and flew away.

 

Noratus. You will become one of the few in the world who will see the largest complex of khachkars in the world. In Noratus, Armenian khachkars of the 10th-18th centuries are collected, differing from each other not only in age, but also in patterns, shapes, symbols and history. The technique of making khachkars is included in the UNESCO Intangible Heritage List and is considered one of the main distinguishing features of Armenian culture.

An interesting fact: back in the last century, the largest complex of Armenian khachkars in the world was located in Nakhichevan in the city of Juga. But after the complete destruction of tens and hundreds of khachkars by the Azerbaijani government, the complex was wiped off the face of the earth, thus giving way to Noratus.

 

Return to Yerevan.
