  • 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.
