Our country is often referred to as an open-air museum.  Here, in an area of somewhat less than 30,000 sq. meters, one can find thousands of historical and architectural monuments, some of which go back to the 3rd millennium B.C. Among the well preserved monuments are: fortresses of the Urartu State era; the summer residence of the Armenian kings, ancient “Temple of the Sun” Garni, and baths of the Hellenistic period; the everlasting symbols of our culture – multiple khachkars (cross stones), and churches and monasteries built after adoption of Christianity in Armenia in 301.  Many tourists are also very interested in medieval monuments of civil architecture: the coeval of the “Great Silk Way”, Selim caravanserai, arch bridges and cave settlement “Old Khndzoresk”.
