Dilijan

Dilijan ©
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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Dilijan: Hayravank Monastery (in Hayravank), Noratus Cemetery (in Noratus) and Monastery Sevanavank (in Sevan). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Haghartsin Monastery, look for gifts at Wine Store Tsaghkadzor, delve into the mystery of Matosavank Monastery, and pause for some photo ops at Monument to the Heroes of the Film Mimino.
