Gyumry, Shirak region

Gyumri is one of those rarest Armenian towns which has preserved the architectural spirit of the 19th century and is rich with variety of architecture styles and inventions. Churches, cross-stones (khachkars), monuments and hundreds of historic buildings exist in this town. It is situated at 122 kilometers from Yerevan. You can reach there by train within 1-3 hours and by car- 1,5-2 hours. If you have reached Gyumri then make sure not to miss the museums of urban life and architecture. You will need a whole day to visit galleries and museums. In Gyumri you will find memorial houses of Hovhannes Shiraz, Avetiq Isahakyan, Mher Mkrtchyan, as well as the gallery of Aslamazyan sisters. Besides the fact that Gyumri is one of the centers of craft and art, it also outstands with hospitability of its townspeople. Like every Armenian the people of Gyumri are also gastrophilists. When you visit Gyumri we recommend tasting one of the symbols of this town- the traditional dish of yakhli, which is a pancake prepared in butter and topped with sugar powder. By the way, there is a similarly-named café in the center of the town so for tasting yakhli there is absolutely no need to search for a long time or to ask someone about it.

Jermuk, Vayots Dzor region

Medical resort city Jermuk is one of the most attractive sites for vacation in Armenia and a part of its rich nature. The city is situated at 170 kilometers from Yerevan and takes three hours to reach. Jermuk is rich not only with warm mineral sources and medical centers but also sightseeing places. Probably, the most remarkable sight can be considered waterfall at height of 72 meters.  By its slope falling into Arpa River it reminds maiden’s hair. The legend has that the father of a wonderful princess cursed her and turned into a mermaid. While listing out the sightseeing places of Jermuk we should not forget, of course, about the rope-way of 1000 meters. Its highest point is located at height of 2480 meters.
