Thursday, September 30, 2021. That’s a day to always recall! As a further exploration of the Armenian culture, we have first visited the Temple of Garni. As known, it is the only standing Greco-Roman colonnaded building in Armenia and the former Soviet Union. Built-in the Ionic order in the village of Garni, in central Armenia, it is the best-known structure and symbol of pre-Christian Armenia.
After that, we have visited one of the most well-known and beautiful natural monuments of Armenia – the Symphony of Stones. These natural monuments are a result of the collapse of volcanic rocks. The monument consists of huge paradoxically symmetric hexagon and pentagon basalt columns (nearly 50 meters high).
We have, afterward, went to the Armenian Cascade which is a giant stairway made of limestone in Yerevan, Armenia. It links the downtown Kentron area of Yerevan with the Monument neighborhood (Arabkir and Kanaker-Zeytun districts). We took a group photo and made memories that will remain in our hearts forever.
Armenia, this place never failed to amuse us! Thankful to everyone contributing to this amazing project. Until we meet again
