  • 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.

  • One of the most beautiful places I've ever visited on this planet. An Charming lake Van, Akhtamar island and on it Armenian Holy Cross Church. One of the rare monuments of the Armenian heritage in the territory of modern Turkey, which more or less retained its primordiality.
  • Is the most beautiful armenian historical church from Turkey. But...is difficult to travel from Van tó the island from september to june. The ferry price is is expensive...less than 25 ytl per person.
  • 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
  • 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).
  • Very nice and beautiful place.
