  • The medieval town of Lori is located on the Lori R. Armenia region, which is 4 km from Stepanakert. . The city stands on a platform surrounded on three sides by the impregnable vertical cliffs of the Dzoraget and Mishan river gorges. these two rivers merge at the foot of the city forming a gorge in the form of a triangle. Only one side of the city is accessible, where a very powerful fortified wall is built 22m wide and 312m long. . The city was built 1035g. King David Kyurikid. At the city gate eats the path can descend into the gorge to the bridge of the 12th street there to sit near the river, near the underground passage. Medieval baths, churches, tomb of the Tsar, Khachkari / cross stone/ have been preserved in the city. The city has a beautiful view of the gorge. But the tourist should be very careful as there are no fences on the cliffs, and there is a depth of 100 m, go only with a guide. there's a lot to tell and show. The tour from Yerevan is not so expensive. than a taxi.

  • The Loriberd is located in the north of Armenia, near the city of Stepanavan. Except for excursions very convenient place for a picnic. I advise to continue this excursion to visit the famous Odzunskij Monastery, as it is located near the fortress, 20 minutes drive.
