Shirak

About 1500-2000 meters high above the sea level, the region of Shirak is the coldest in Armenia sometimes with an air temperature of -46°C in winter.

 

The region borders with Turkey in the west and Georgia in the north. The ancient history of Shirak reminds that of Ararat Valley, sometimes more legend than history, but according to scientists it has been inhabited 25,000 years ago, with settlements mainly found along the Akhurian Valley since around 9000 BC.

 

 

Gyumri was once the most pleasant, vivid and wonderful city of Armenia. It was also an education and art center for all Armenians around the world. The first Armenian opera performance was staged in Gyumri in 1912; eleven years later the first theatre hosted the first spectators. Being the center of arts and entertainment, Gyumri was and actually still is the capital of humor. Many great artists originated from this city of warmth and sunshine. No matter how sad you may be, bugged with troubles in your everyday life, the humorous people of this wonderful city will keep your mood high and will smile throughout your entire trip in their city.

 

The Monastery of Harichavank is situated in the village of Harich in the Shirak Province. The precise date of the foundation of the Monastery is not known exactly. But archeological excavations have shown that the Monastery of Harichavank was built in the 2nd century BC and was once a well known fortress town. 

The Monastery embraces the churches of St. Grigor Lusavorich (Gregory the Enlightener) and St. Astvatsatsin (The Holy Mother of God), as well as two gavits and several chapels, all of them constructed during different periods. The territory of the Monastery is surrounded by walls.

 

 

The monastic complex of Marmashen, which is also known as Marmarashen Vank is situated on a picturesque shelf facing the left bank of the Akhuryan River surrounded by fruitful trees, a stream and a nice waterfall. According to a version the name of the complex means “a marble building”, even though there is no marble used in the construction of the complex. In this case the “marble building” may be attributed to the fact that it was constructed with the highest quality.
