    "Армянский "Ватикан""

    Городок Эчмиадзин — сокровище без всяких преувеличений. Его не зря называют «армянским Ватиканом» и самым святым местом республики. Христианство в самой первой христианской стране на свете — оно началось именно отсюда.
    Звартноц самый необычный храм Великой Армении был воздвигнут в 640 году. Говорят, храм был настолько хорош, что присутствующий при его освящении византийский император Константин пожелал построить у себя в Константинополе такой же! Тут есть музей, раскопки, и конечно руины храма, которые понемногу восстанавливаются.
