During even a short period of time you will have an opportunity to explore both the rich historical-cultural heritage of the Artsakhian people, their habits, traditions, legends and famous cuisine. This is fine active rest, where there is everything: physical exercise, knowledge acquisition, change of impressions, and the joy of fellowship with nature.
