#304: PRIVATE Guided tour to Etchmiadzin and Khor Virap
In the beginning, we will visit Vagharshapat city located in the western direction from Yerevan. Here we will enter Etchmiadzin mother cathedral that is an alternative of the Vatican for the Armenians. Next to Etchmiadzin, we will enter to the Etchmiadzin museum where invaluable suckered Christian artifacts are protected. Among them is the saint lance with what roman soldier Longines pierced Jesus when he was crucified.
After this, we will visit the ruins of the gorgeous Zvartnots cathedral. This place has such good energy that even after being ruined because of a devastating earthquake, it continues to be an attractive site for the visitors.
The next part of the trip will take place in the southern direction from Yerevan, where the Khor Virap monastery is. This is not only a beautiful landmark that deserves to be visited but also the closest point to Mount Ararat, from where opens a beautiful view of this sacker mountain.
