Tours - "Forest Queen" - Sevan-Dilijan-Haghartsin-Goshavank Monastery

Lake Sevan is the largest lake in Armenia and one of the largest high-altitude lakes in the world. Lake Sevan is situated in the central part of the Republic of Armenia, in the Gegharkunik Province, on an altitude altitude of 1900m above sea level. The total surface area of its basin is about 5000 km2, the lake itself is 940 km2, and has a volume of 34.0 bln cubic meters. It is fed by 28 rivers and streams. Only 10% of the outgoing water is drained by the Hrazdan (Razdan) River, while the remaining 90% evaporates.
Collectively referred to as the Seas of Armenia, Lake Van, Lake Urmia and Lake Sevan were one of the three great lakes in the historical Kingdom of Armenia. Today, Lake Sevan is the only lake that is found within the boundaries of the Republic of Armenia.

Dilijan is a lush, green city located in the northern Armenian province of Tavush. It is one of the most important resorts of Armenia, situated in the Dilijan National Park. The forested and reclusive city is home to numerous Armenian artists, composers, and filmmakers and features some traditional Armenian architecture. The Sharambeyan Street in the centre has been preserved and maintained as an "old town," complete with craftsman's workshops, a gallery and a museum. Hiking, mountain biking and picnicking are popular recreational activities. The city's population is steadily declining from the 23,700 reported in the 1989 census, to 14,846 in the 2001 census, with an estimated 15,600 by 2009.

Haghartsin Monastery is on the road to Ijevan; near the village of teghut. It is one of Armenia's most evocative sites. After passing the remains of a cable car, one can note the funerary shrines with khachkars. Haghartsin is a monastery complex, its first structure is the large vaulted dining room of 1248, one of only two such in Armenia (other at Haghpat), beyond which is a ruined service kitchen with a working oven. The gavit (end of 12th c) was built at the request of Ivan Zakarian against the small domed 10th c. Church of St. Grigor Church and behind which is the small St. Stepanos Church of 1244.
On the exterior east wall of the St. Astvatatsin Church on the right, built or rebuilt in, you can see a relief sculpture showcasing the Zakarian Brothers.
Just east of St. Astvatsatsin is a very old walnut tree that scatters its shadow on the various graveyards including that of the Royal Bagratuni Family that extends to the south of the St. Gregory Church.

Goshavank Monastery
The Goshavank Monastery, founded in 1188 by the famous Armenian cleric, scientist, author and lawmaker Mkhitar Gosh (died 1213) with the help of Prince Ivan Zakarian, stands in the place of the Old Getik Vank that was destroyed by an earthquake in 1188. The architect Mkhitar the Carpenter and his apprentice Hovhanes also took an active part in the construction of the monastery.

The Reading Room of the monastery,built in several stages, has a chapel/bell tower on top (1291).
You can see the intricate work by Master Poghos (1254) on the khachkar known as the “Aseghnagorts”(embroidery) that stands next to the St. Gregory Church.

The construction of the Church of Gregory the Illuminator had begun in 1237 and ended by Prince Grigor-Tkha in 1241.It is a chapel that has beautiful carvings on its walls. The domed structure situated south-west of the complex is known as the St. Hripsime Chapel (1254). One of the most unusual structural compositions in Goshavank is the Book Depository with its Bell Tower.
