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.
Start off your visit on the 11th (Mon): make a trip to Monument to the Heroes of the Film Mimino, don't miss a visit to Monastery Sevanavank, then cool off at Hayravank Monastery, then steep yourself in history at Saint Sargis Chapel, and finally don't miss a visit to Goshavank Monastery. On your second day here, delve into the lush surroundings at Dilijan National Park.

To plan Dilijan vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
