Why Artsakh and not Kharabakh? The reason is that at the beginning of the II century the land was part of Armenian Kingdom called Artsakh and after gaining independence Turkish name Karabakh, that means black garden, gradually has become less used. The country really had many difficulties but now this is a peaceful and actively developing region that year by year attracts more and more tourists. Unique traditions, magic nature, rich cultural heritage and local cuisine make Artsakh very attractive for tourists. Necessary touristic infrastructures are developed here for guest’s comfort. Within the short period of this tour you will have the opportunity of being acquainted with both rich cultural and historic heritage and Artsakh people, their customs, traditions, legends and famous cuisine. And we are sure you will be back here for long period of travelling.
