Ashtarak
Ashtarak, the administrative center of Aragatsotn Marz, is situated near the picturesque gorge of the river Kasakh. The famous Byurakan Observatory and the Nor-Amberd Cosmic Ray Station of the Yerevan Institute of Physics are on the territory of Aragatsotn Marz. Ashtarak is a historical site with many architectural monuments from earlier and later periods of Middle Ages. Among them the most notable are the basilica of Tsiranavor, the Karmravor Church, the ancient three-arch bridge over Kasakh and so on.

There's another important reason why Ashtarak is considered a historical site. It's the centuries old tradition of wine culture developing in severe land conditions. Ashtarak and its outskirts are a land of stone. However, wonderful dry wines, brandies and the best Armenian sherry owe their birth to this very land of Ashtarak.
