Armenia – a country of amazing sights that have centuries-old history and breathtaking beauty. During the tour, you will visit Khor Virap monastery, which is located above the underground prison, where St. Gregory the Illuminator was imprisoned for about 14 years before curing King Trdat III of a disease. Thus, the king and the entire nation adopted Christianity. Continuing the tour, you will visit Noravank, where according to a legend, a piece of the True Cross, stained with the blood of Christ, was hidden. Noravank monastery complex was built in XIII—XIV centuries. The name “Noravank” translated into English means “New Monastery”, although today it is already more than seven-century-old one. At the end of the day, you will also visit the Areni Cave, where the oldest 5500-year-old leather shoes were found.
