  • The Church is located on a hill above Artik and it can be reached only on foot by a square below, but since the road is not paved sometimes you must walk a longer stretch depending on the car that you have available. The Church is small and an octagonal drum supporting the dome that is characterized by some well-maintained frescos, which is rare for an Armenian Church.

  • Actually, this monastery was goavnoj the purpose of our appearance in Gyumri. Lmbatavank-while in fact he is called Karmirvankom, but consists mainly of St. Stepanos Church is located a few kilometers (feels like-two small) of Artika, which go from the bus station (avtokajana) in Gyumri with half an hour. Buses run every hour. Next to the monastery are abandoned quarries. But the main thing is not in the monastery of stone, all the more so because it is not known where he was transported for the construction of the monastery in 7 century. Although, probably so smoothly otesannyj Tuff is much more recent origin. Or exterior restored so a little more than half a century ago. Most importantly it is the preserved fragments of frescoes of the assumption. In Armenia such not often seen. They are no longer such juicy on colors, as desired. Individual lines only thinly veiled. Nevertheless, the impression is very strong.

  • Lmbatavank is such a good place. It is very small. But it looks very tall inside. Some parts of the walls are covered with beautiful murals. Some murals are made with "vordan karmir", which is a red hue produced from some red insects. Lmbatavank is a pilgrimage site for the people of Artik. It will take some 20 minutes to get here from the small Freedom Square. P.S. the lady who works there is so hospitable, so nice. She represents the kind spirit of the people in Artik!
