Armenia, September 2022


Zvartnots Cathedral, UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located in the middle of vineyards and trees dazzled with apricots and cherries while Ararat peeks in from the background. Built in the 7th-century AD, Zvartnots Cathedral was a rare architectural monument because of its unique design. Before the earthquake in the 10th-century AD destroyed Zvartnots Cathedral, it was the biggest and oldest church of Armenia throughout its history.
