DaBestKaSummer in Armenia | Updates
Armenia is a nation, and former Soviet republic, in the mountainous Caucasus region between Asia and Europe.We highlighted some of the sights we visited and explored.
Here are the top touristic monuments that we have visited in Armenia:
Our first stop was at the Republic Square, it’s located in the central area of the capital and is one of the main spots for gathering for the citizens and tourists. Walking around this place is beautiful and safe, as you walk pass by people you can hear many languages, you can see people taking selfies and pictures, kids running away, an old couple sitting by the waterfall, college kids discussing dreams and future. It’s a must visit place in Armenia.
Armenian Opera Theater building is stunning, you just want to look at and admire the architecting techniques, unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance to go in but hopefully, I would go next time and enjoy a show.
Unique statues, green land, and colorful flowers are what astonished me in The Cascade, it felt as if everything there had statements, such as freedom, creativity and persuasion, because this country has been through so much struggle in order to be independent. And underneath the long stairs and monument, there is an art museum that includes art pieces from several famous Armenian artists.
The Mother Armenia monument is a monumental statue in Victory Park overlooking the capital city of Yerevan. The Mother Armenia has a huge sword in her hands with a shield at her feet. It stands for all those women who were not afraid to take up arms and stands by their husbands during the clashes with Turkish troops and Kurdish irregulars.
Temple of Garni, is the best-known structure and symbol of pre-Christian Armenia. It is the only standing Greco-Roman colonnaded building in Armenia and the former Soviet Union. The architecture is amazingly done because once you see it you feel the historical feed of it.
Lake Sevan is the largest body of water in Armenia and the Caucasus region, and one of the largest freshwater high-altitude lakes in Eurasia. The lake is situated in Gegharkunik Province, at an altitude of 1,900 m above sea level. We had the chance to water cruise in this wonderful lake and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful view. And what added up to this experience is the lunch we had after which was freshly barbecued fish from the lake.
Last day was all about chilling and everyone went shopping by their own, buying chocolate from local supermarkets, and souvenirs for family and friends and for ourselves as a memory to hold forever. It was a lovely trip with good hearted people that made it so easy to get along and have fun!! Check out the images from our trip below.
