Through the Past to the Future

 

If you are a person who knows how to ask questions, and moreover, to search answers to them, it is your country! In each of us exists a Researcher – as laid down by nature. And exactly here, at least for a short period of time, you can be a Researcher opening both for you and others the secrets of ancestors, the secrets of lost civilizations, the secrets of knowledge, and the secrets of self-knowledge …

Armenia is a country of stones, but the stones that speak. We will teach you how to communicate with them, to speak the same language, and you can learn more and more from them by yourselves. You can listen, but not hear; you can look but not see… But you can hear the silence and see the unseen. That is what we offer you in this tour.
