THE DISPUTED SERIES, DAY 7

KARABAKH – ARMENIA

Before heading back we drove up north for 30mins to Gandzasar Monastery. Another impressive view but would have been happy to miss it out as it didn’t provide anything unique.

FACTS….

  • Most people with in Karabakh are Armenians and Azerbaijanis.
  • They wish to be an independent state.
  • The dispute between Armenia and Azerbaijan arose from their independence from Russia.
  • The population is 150,000.

SHUSHI

On the way back we dropped into a place called Sushi just south of Stepanakert. It’s amazing how quiet these huge monasteries are, I had the Shushi Ghazanchetsots Cathedral and Shushi Mosque all to myself. They are impressive buildings but not sure they come close to what I seen yesterday LINK.

YEREVAN

Arriving in Yerevan I went back to the cascade and obviously had to eat at the same place I did yesterday, Armenian food isn’t so bad, you just need to know what to order.

FINAL THOUGHTS

It’s clear to see that the beauty of Armenia is well outside of Yerevan and any trip to Armenia without leaving the capital is wasted I’d say.
