  • Church in Europe, North and South America is not flashy decoration, sculpture, is a simple and dignified and attractive. Return is inconvenient because it can be reached by public transport even a lesser frequency. Local taxis is price 3000 drums of roundtrip from the city centre. Went for 12 months of off-season is entrance personnel, admission was free.

  • Haghpat monastery is very interesting inside with a bunch of different rooms. You can literally be photographed each corner because there in pretty much everything. There are arches, columns, bars. You can hardly imagine how the monastery lived in such conditions, but it is no less. Recommend to visit.

  • As soon as you arrive you proposed a guide and with a donation brought us around explaining all the various facets of this monastery, letting us see even a room not open to the public. Amazing!
