Sevanavank, or the Monastery of Sevan, is located at a beautiful place on the shore of Lake Sevan. The monastery was founded in 874 on a rocky island. Due to artificial draining of the lake in the Soviet times it is now a peninsula.
On the same peninsula, there are several other buildings too. Those include the summer residence of the president of Armenia, a guesthouse of the Armenian Writers' Union and the Vaskenian Theological Academy.
Sevanank is one of the most visited Armenian monasteries and one of the few that is still an active monastery.
