This was my first visit to an Armenian church. The interior is just beautiful and there is information inside for those who wish to learn more about this particular church but also about the Armenian church in general.

It's amazing that this old Armenian quarter and church have been so well preserved since the 13th century. Make sure to see the fresco inside the church.

This Cathedral is not well presented by exterior, but the interior is stunning. Go to see this and to hear about its history.

Very old, quite unusual Armenian church! It’s in the city center, so you can easily find it. It’s on reconstruction, there are many guides speaking different languages, so you can sit there for a wile and listen for free.

Well-hidden bit still visible,this church is very impressive. The paintings on the walls of the 20th century remind of the art nouveau style and are so unusual for a place like that. The atmosphere is calm and unique. There is no official fee, though you...More
