Vagharshapat is most populous town in the Armavir Province of Armenia, located about 18km west of the capital Yerevan, and 10km north of the closed Turkish-Armenian border. Discover out-of-the-way places like Saint Mesrop Mashtots Cathedral and Byurakan Church. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Khor Virap and Saint Gayane Church. Venture out of the city with trips to Cathedral of Aruch (in Aruch), Tushpa Wine Cellar (in Taperakan) and Kasagh River (in Artashavan). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Echmiadzin Monastery, explore the ancient world of Zvartnots Temple, pause for some serene contemplation at Kristapori Vank Church, and admire the striking features of Saint Hripsime Church.
