Goris, is a town in the southern Syunik Province of Armenia.

Here are some ideas for day two: take in the dramatic natural features at Satanayi Kamurj (Satan's Bridge), then take in the spiritual surroundings of Tatev Monastery, then delve into the distant past at Zorats Karer, and finally admire the sheer force of Shaki Waterfall.

Yerevan
Old and new sit side by side in Yerevan, showing the country's capital to be a city on the move, but also proud of its history and traditions.
Let the collections at Matenadaran - The Museum of Ancient Manuscripts and History Museum of Armenia capture your imagination.

Get out of town with these interesting Yerevan side-trips: Garni Temple (in Garni), Khor Virap (in Lusarat) and The Monastery of Geghard (in Geghard). On the 18th (Fri), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Ski Resort Tsakhkadzor. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Parajanov Museum, stroll through Yerevan Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Armenian Genocide Museum, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Hripsime Church.
