Sevan2Lake Sevan: A fresh water lake of pure natural beauty such as that embodied by Lake Sevan is rare. Lake Sevan is situated 60 kilometers northeast of Yerevan. The winter cold is quite harsh, while the summer sun is deceptively strong. In ancient times Sevan was called the Geghama Sea. Over a mile high, the water of Sevan reflects the palette of vivid colors from lazur to deep blue, hypnotizing with its magnetic and majestic aura. The peninsula, together with its monastery, is a secret of nature which has yet to be explained. The basin of the lake is scattered with rock paintings, sculptures and works of architecture including remains of fortification from the Bronze and Iron Ages.
The pearl of Armenia, Sevan is also a favorite destination for fishing. The shore offers tourists several first class resorts, small and big hotels and motels as well as comfortable beaches. Any of the burgeoning shoreline restaurants prepare and serve delicious fresh fish and crayfish, in addition to more standard fare with local style for the visitors to the lake.
A railroad along the beach gives tourists an opportunity to travel along the beach and admire the unique beauty of the lake. The gentle turquoise of Sevan’s water will leave the visitor with unforgettable impressions as well as an uplifting of one’s soul and spirit.
