Byurakan Astrophysical Observatory reviews
Byuakan observatory located on the slope of mount Aragats, in the village Byrakan. That is huge complex from soviet era. more »
During the tour we learned a lot of very interesting things about stars and space and details about research process. At night we enjoyed awesome observation of moon, stars and planets by telescope. more »
During the daytime it is rather uninteresting unless you're really fan of telescopes and would like to have a peek at the one which at the time of construction in 1977 was worlds 7th largest optical telescope.
Interesting place. There is excursion for 40 minutes. During the tour you can see Saturn, Jupiter, the Moon ... Telescope 120 mm.
