Full description
Situated at an altitude of 1,400–1,800 meters in the picturesque mountainscape of Karabakh, Shushi is one of the main cities of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic. During the 19th century, Shushi was one of the main cultural and educational cities in the Caucasus, housing numerous schools, printing houses and theaters. Due to its mixed population, it was also home to several Christian Armenian Churches and Islamic Iranian Mosques, one of which is currently being restored.

Stepanakert is the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh. It is situated on the western incline of the Karabakh mountain range, 850 meters above sea level on the left bank of the tributary of the Karkar River Vararakn. The leading symbol and landmark of Shushi is the Church of Surb Ghazanchetsots, or "All Holy Savior". Dating back to the 19th century, the Surb Ghazanchetsots Church is also one of the largest Armenian churches. The Gandzasar Monastery also dates back to the 10th century, and is located in the Martakert district of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. Downhill from the church, you can also see a cave which has been turned into a lion's head.

On the 2nd day the tour will begin from Tigranakert. The city of Tigranakert is a Hellenistic city, one of four Tigranakerts founded by the Armenian King Tigran the Great (95-55 B.C.) in 100 B.C. The city is located in the Martakert region of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, near the river Khachenaget. Dadivank (or Khutavank) is an ancient monastery complex in the Karvachar region of the Nagorno Karabagh Republic. It is situated in the picturesque valley between the Karabakh and Mrav Mountains, and is certainly one of the most charming and beautiful places in the country. The monastery was founded in the 1st century A.D. by St. Dadi, a disciple of Thaddeus the Apostle, who spread Christianity in eastern Armenia.
