An oasis of historic and natural beauty.
The quiet beauty of Dilijan in the “Armenian Switzerland” make for a calming change of pace. Dilijan’s old town demonstrates a side of Armenian history that can be hard to find elsewhere, from restored stone houses to active craft workshops. While most visitors come seeking hiking paths and scenic vistas, Dilijan still hosts a fair number of spas and health resorts.
Sitting in the center of the Dilijan National Park, this town is a great way to explore different aspects of Armenia’s wilderness. Nearby Lake Sevan, with its turquoise waters, is a must-see. Sevan’s fish are a popular delicacy in Dilijan’s restaurants. Of the several monasteries nearby, we recommend visiting Haghartsin, as well as Goshavank (also known as Nor Getik) if you have the time.
