Lake Sevan and City of Sevan

Lake Sevan is a beautiful lake in the midst of mountains at the altitude of 1900 metres. It used to be even higher but was artificially drained in the Soviet times. It is the biggest lake in Armenia and in the Caucasus region.

The city of Sevan is on the western shore of Lake Sevan (not far from Sevanavank Monastery). There are several popular resorts in its vicinity. The city was founded by the Russians in the 19th century and used to be called Elenovka or Yelenovka.

Hayravank Monastery and a Cyclopian fortress next to it are also located on the shores of Lake Sevan. We didn't visit them but I took few photos through the bus window as we drove by.
