Day 3

Yerevan – Etchmiadzin – Zvartnots – Yerevan

After breakfast, we move to Etchmiadzin. On the way, visit St. Hripsime Church. This is a masterpiece of architecture and a marvelous example of a cross-cupola architecture of the 7th century. We reach for Cathedral of St. Etchmiadzin (UNESCO World Heritage). Liturgy takes places on Sundays only. This oldest Christian temple was founded in 301 and is one of the first churches in the Christian World.

After having lunch, continuing our way and reaching the edge of the town of Echmiadzin, you will appear in the second destination - Zvartnots Cathedral area. At the time of its construction, it was one of the biggest cathedrals in the country and there was an idea that it was built to suppress Echmiatsin Cathedral by its grandeur. The breath of history soars at this place, which dates back to 7th century.

In 10th century, Zvartnots was nearly fully destroyed and remained buried until its remains were uncovered at the start of the 20th Century. Nowadays, visitors mostly see ruins of Zvartnots Cathedral rather the entire picture itself and this draws even more mystery and interest around this place.

Then we will return to Yerevan.

Then we will go down to the Garni Gorge, and you can see a wonderful assembly of rocks. In Armenia, it's called "Symphony of the Stones".

Proceed to Geghard Monastery, which is, by the way, listed in UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The main church, constructed in 1215, is the oldest building in the monastery complex. The monastery has withstood many assaults. It was one of the greatest spiritual and cultural centers in Armenia. Hundreds of khachkars (cross-stones) and caves are carved in the rocks surrounding the Monastery.
