A perfect harmony of untouched nature and splendid architecture where the human creativity and efforts only added to the overall beauty of the entire territory- all this you can see in Haghartsin.  A magnificent pearl warmly embraced within the green pearl of nature. Haghartsin monastery is  the magical piece of architecture. The combination of natural and architectural beauty is very impressive, and most visitors to Armenia do not ever see it. There are three main buildings still standing.
Is this the heaven we have been searching for? At least that is the sense one gets when in the presence of this extraordinary and strange beauty. Lake Gosh is located in Tavush region, near Gosh village. The length of the lake is 100 m, width – 80 m. Approximate depth is 8 m. In summer water temperature reaches up to 14 C. There are lots of different hand-made monuments in the territory of the lake: various rock formations, mineral springs and so on.
On the northwest part of the lake, on the narrow rocky peninsula there stands one of the most  prominent landmarks of medieval Armenian architecture – Sevanavank monastery. Sevanavank is one of the most visited tourism sights in Armenia. The remnants of the monastery constructed in the 9 th century include only two temples – Surb Arakelots and Surb Astvatsatsin standing among numerous khachkars. The church buildings were constructed from black tuff which probably gave the monastery its name “Sevanavank” - “the Black Monastery”. The churches are cross-shaped buildings. They are distinguished by their masonry from cut stones in combination with encasement of the drums and similar eaves and arches.
