AMBERD

Amberd is a fortress complex with a church built on the eastern slopes of  Aragats Mountain at 2,500 meters above sea level in the XI-XIII centuries. The special strategic position and the hard building efforts of mighty princes of their time Phalavunis, Zakaryans and Vachutyans make Amberd as a work of war fare art. The prince palace was in this fortress too. The fortress is still standing and it makes a great impression on tourists. It is extraordinary impressive: the view opening from the palace's windows on the ice tops of Ararat Mountain and Araratyan Valley. The palace is three-storeyed. On the 1st floor has armoury and water reserves. In Amberd are persisted baths outside the palace. During the of the baths were found graceful bronze faucets for hot and cold water. None of the conquerors succeeded to capture Amberd. It is the unbreakable symbol of Armenian mountainous spirit.
