An alpine haven resting in a plush evergreen national park, Dilijan has made a name for itself as the "Armenian Switzerland." A much-loved spa town rich in culture and history, uncover the majestic 10th century monasteries, undisturbed scenic vistas, and hiking trails through undulating forest.
Venture out of the city with trips to Saint Sargis Chapel (in Gosh), Hayravank Monastery (in Hayravank) and Noratus Cemetery (in Noratus). Make the 30th (Tue) an awe-inspiring day at Dilijan National Park. Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Monastery Sevanavank, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Matosavank Monastery, appreciate the history behind Monument to the Heroes of the Film Mimino, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Haghartsin Monastery.
