Gegharkunik

The region of Gegharkunik includes the Lake Sevan and the watershed of the numerous streams that flow into it and out down the Hrazdan River to the Arax.

The lake has a special importance not only for the entire region, but for the whole country. It is the largest fresh water basin in the South Caucasus. The lake has a vital impact not only on the ecological balance, but also on the economy.

After the reconstruction and restoration efforts which took place from 1956 to 1957, we have the monastic complex Sevanavank located on a peninsula at the northwestern shore of Lake Sevan.

Noratus is an ancient Armenian village. The village is famous for its cemetery of cross-stones(khachkars), the largest one in the territory of Armenia. Once the cemetery in Julfa in Nakhichevan (Territory of Azerbaijan) was the largest one, but it was destroyed between 1998 and 2006, and now the cemetery in Noratus is the greatest one in the whole world.
