Monastery
Open Details
Tatev Monastery is located high up in the mountains (and this is not the beginning of table toast) and far away from Yerevan (250 km, to be exact). It is most convenient to go there by taxi or car - the bus makes too many stops on the way. The plan is to rent a car and leave Yerevan early in the morning. In 20 kilometers you will see and feel another, traditional Armenia. Here are its signs: the road crosses a herd of cows, the locals pass by on donkeys, the air is so clean - at least drink a mug.
To the monastery leads ropeway "Wings of Tatev" - the longest in the Guinness Book of Records, a minute. Driving on it is a little scary, but in just a few minutes in exchange for fear you will get one of the most exciting panoramas in your life. Fans of etymology will love the fact that "Tatev" is translated from Armenian as "give wings".
