My 2-day road trip. the interesting Artsakh (part 2)

You may read the first post about the trip here, and the beginning of the post about Artsakh here.

Here I will show the images from Vank village and nearby locations. I was really very surprised to see things like that in Artsakh and my friends too, when they saw the photos, were amazed by the creativity of those architects and designers out there.

So, after visiting the wonderful Gandzasar Monastery we went down the hill and continued by the road further. There was this very original rest house named "Sea Stone" that... well, better watch it yourself.

It's difficult to show in photos everything that has to be seen there. Pick a chance and just GO!

In the end, photos of the St. Ghazanchetsots Cathedral in Shushi.
