  • I went as a family type. The historic pictures that beautiful people have reliefs in a different venue, but that maintenance-free feel. The Museum card is introduced but with no a. When more groomed may be more comprehensive.

  • It was a nice day trip from Van. A relaxing boat ride and a sip of tea on the island or on the shore. Highly recommended
  • Get to the island Van on the lake early and enjoy visiting the Armenian holy cross church.
  • Interesting though sadly not very well-preserved church on a picturesque island. Take a minibus to Gevas / Akdamar and then a boat (for about 15 TL return).
  • Mükemmel bir yer.. Its great place every one should visit there. On the life one time...
  • Beautiful church built by the native people of Van ( the Armenians). The church is currently within Turkish borders (use to be within Armenian borders before the 1900's) due to the Armenian genocide which was perpetrated by the ottoman Turkish government in 1915.
