  • Armenians still is active as a religious Church use. Each building has an octagonal plan other than a separate thing. ICI out as sexy. Free visits but already you pay Akdamar Island to find your footing like feet

  • Go to Van is a great loss to me see here. Situated approximately from the center of van 35-40 minutes in front of the pier, park your car Akdamar Church, you can. Boat leaves within a reasonable time so that you're not. The boat ride takes about 20 minutes per person 7 TL fees. The output of the island until the Museum card free otherwise you have to give $5 to the island. A café on the island they're serving tea, biscuits. Walk around the island for at least 1-1.5 hours, you do not have to return to the boat coming. Boats ring. On the island where there is excellent in the flagpole over there go necessarily.

  • You can go by boat and see an amazing Armenian church
  • 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.
  • Increadible, fantastic, impressive!!!
  • Spirit of Armenia
