The Ultimate Traveller: Impressions of Armenia
February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm15$
We start at the foot of Mount Ararat in Armenia and see Yerevan with its impressive memorial to the Armenian Genocide. We will also see the ancient Monasteries of Haghpat & Sanahin, Lake Sevan, the Cathedral and Churches of Echmiatsin, the ancient archaeological site of Zvartnots and the Monastery of Geghard and the Upper Azat Valley. We also will explore Nagorno-Karabakh, which can only be accessed through Armenia. Locally known as Artsakh, this self-declared republic consists of the traditionally Armenian parts of Azerbaijan that are currently locked in a struggle to break away. The territory has been fought over by Azeri and Armenian backed local forces but now benefits from a long standing period of peace.
