Jermuk

Jermuk
Known as the source of much of the country's mineral water, the mountain spa town of Jermuk in truth quenches visitors' thirsts for much more besides.
Hot Springs has been added to your itinerary. Popular historic sites such as Noravank Monastery and St. Astvatsatsin Church are in your itinerary. Step off the beaten path and head to Karahundj (Armenia's Stonehenge) and Medieval Goris Cave Dwellings. Venture out of the city with trips to Shaki Waterfall (in Sisian), Areni (Noravank Gorge & T'rchuneri (Bird) Cave) and Vardenyats Pass (Selim Pass) (in Geghhovit). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Jermuk Waterfall and cruise along Ughtassar Petroglyphs.

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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Goshavank Monastery and Khosrov Forest State Reserve. Get some historical perspective at Haghartsin Monastery and Khor Virap. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Yerevan: The Monastery of Geghard (in Geghard), Monument to the Heroes of the Film Mimino (in Dilijan) and Hayravank Monastery (in Hayravank). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Churches of Echmiatsin and the Archaeological Site of Zvartnots, browse the fresh offerings at Gum Market, admire the landmark architecture of Saint Hripsime Church, and don't miss a visit to Republic Square.
