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.
Kids will enjoy Hayravank Monastery and Gyumri's Central Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dilijan: Gyumri (Mher Mkrtchyan Museum, Black Fortress, &more), Lori-Pambak Geological Museum of Vanadzor (in Vanadzor) and Kecharis Monastery (in Tsakhkadzor). There's much more to do: make a trip to Monastery Sevanavank, stroll the grounds of Noratus Cemetery, explore the ancient world of Horomayri Monastery, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Saint Sargis Chapel.
