Come to Dilijan to discover how Armenian Switzerland looks like. Dilijan is known for its forest landscapes, rich biodiversity, and medicinal mineral water springs as well as for its natural and cultural monuments. During the soviet times it was a peaceful retreat for cinematographers, composers, artists and writers as there is enough natural beauty to inspire creative thought. High in the woody mountains you will find the monastic complex Hagartsin built in the 12th century. Traditionally, an eagle was soaring over the dome of the main building at its dedication and thus it became commonly known as the monastery of the playing (or soaring) eagle (“Hagh” means a game while “Artsiv” means eagle in Armenian). The image of this proud and strong bird can often be seen on the walls of Hagartsin. When Sharjah’s  Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi made a fortuitous visit to  Haghartsin he was so caught with the beauty of the monastery that donated money for its reconstruction. You will end up your tour by visiting another medieval monastery called Goshavank dedicated to one of the most prominent figures in the history of Armenia -Mkhitar Gosh who was a  scholar, writer, public figure, thinker and a priest.
