On this day you will head to Khor Virap (meaning «deep dungeon») monastery, which stands in front of the snowcapped flanks of Mount Ararat, offering a spectacular view of the mountain, the national symbol of Armenia. This is the place where St. Gregory the Illuminator, the 1st Catholicos, was imprisoned for 13 years before the conversion of the king and Armenia into the first officially Christian nation in the world in the year 301. The next destination will be a winery of Areni village to taste several types of wine and other alcoholic spirits, as Armenia has old traditions of viticulture. The oldest winery in the world has been found in a cave near this village. Not so far from Areni there is Noravank monastery nestled into a majestic mountain. It has several masterpieces of the Armenian architecture and sculpture, including one of the rare 2-floored churches in Armenia, a rare sculpture of God, a lot of beautifully carved cross-stones and many more, created by talented Armenian architect and sculptor Momik. The area, surrounded by breathtaking rocky nature, is also famous for its rich diversity of birds. Afterwards you’ll have the unique experience of Wings of Tatev – the longest reversible aerial tramway in the world (5752m.), which takes to Tatev Monastery, flying above the most picturesque and impressive Vorotan gorge. Tatev monastery is a 9th century historical monument and one of the oldest and most famous complexes in Armenia. In the Middle Ages it was a vital scholastic, enlightenment, spiritual, cultural and political center with around 1000 monks and played an exceptional role in the country’s history.
