AirVuz contributor doc brings us this rather eerie drone video of the Armenian capital city Yerevan under community-wide quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic in the early Spring of 2020.  Like most of the former Soviet Union countries, Armenia did not see significant numberso of confirmed infections until comparatively late; the 100th Armenian case wasn't recorded until the third week of March.  Nevertheless, by March 16th, fairly strict social distancing measures were put in place across the country.

Armenia's Khor Vrap Monastery

Johny Kondakjian Photography used a drone to create this beautiful video of the Khor Virap Monastery on Armenia's Ararat Plain.  The structure was built in the 17th century, on the ruins of the site of a Pilgrimage of Gregory the Illuminator, who was credited with converting Armenia to Christianity in the 4th century AD.  The current church was preceded by a chapel built on this important religious site.  The monastery also provides a vantage point to view nearby Mt. Ararat, Turkey's tallest mountain.

Garni Temple, Armenia

Contributor Johny Kondakjian Photography used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create this spectacular video of the Temple of Garni, one of Armenia's cultural treasures.  It is the country's only standing temple dating to the period before Armenia became the first proto-country to convert to Christianity, in 301 AD.  Believed to have dated to the first century, it collapsed in an earthquake in the 17th century, and was excavated and rebuilt in the 20th century.  It lies in the Kotayk Province in the middle of the country.

Contributor johny kondakjian photography created this beautiful drone video from a remote part of the republic of Armenia.  The video was filmed in Syunik, the southernmost of the 11 provinces which make up the country.  The province has long borders with Iran (to the south and west) and with Azerbaijan (to the east), and its culture reflects its proximity to these neighbors.  Heavily forested, much of the province is covered by the Zangezur Mountains, which also form the boundary with Azerbaijan.

Sevanavank Monastery, Lake Sevan


Sevan and Sevanavank Monastery, Armenia


Sevanavank is one of the most important monasteries in Armenia, a country known in part for its churches.  It is situated on a peninsula of Lake Sevan, a giant lake in the Gegharkunik Province, which covers the east central part of this republic in the Caucasus region.  The lake covers over 1.2k square km (almost 500 square mi), making it one of the largest freshwater lakes in Eurasia.  The monastery here dates to the 9th century AD.  You can check out the historic landmark from above in this excellent drone video by AlexAvsharov.

Aragatsotn Province: Amberd Fortress

Syunik Province: Tatev Monastery


The Tatev Monastery, Armenia


Contributor and drone pilot AlexAvsharov brings us this excellent aerial video of one of the great Monasteries of Armenia.  The Tatev Monastery is located in the Syunik Province, a southeastern extension of the country which is all but surrounded by Azerbaijan and Iran.  Founded in the 9th century AD, the three main components to the complex are churches devoted to Saints Paul and Peter, Saint Gregory the Illuminator, and Holy Mother of God.  At one point, the monastery was home to over 1,000 monks.

Noravank Monastery, Vayots Dzor Province


The Noravank Monastery, Armenia


Contributor AlexAvsharov put together this excellent aerial tour of a well-known monastery in Armenia, one of the first lands to officially adopt Christianity.  It's called the Noravank Monastery, and it's located in a narrow river gorge in the Vayots Dzor Province near Yeghegnadzor, a bit over 120 km (75 mi.) south of the Armenian capital city, Yerevan.  It was founded in 1206.  The two main buildings in the complex are the Surb Astvatsatsin Church, completed in 1339, and the somewhat smaller Surb Karapet Church, completed in 1227.

Resort on Lake Sevan


Sevan Writers House, Armenia


AirVuz contributor and pilot Peter31Scott brings us this excellent aerial view of a lodging property on Lake Sevan in Armenia.  The Sevan Writers House overlooks the giant lake, which covers over 1.2k square km (almost 500 square mi.) and is the largest in the entire Caucasus region.  One of the largest high-altitude freshwater lakes in the world, it's one of the region's top vacation destinations.  The lake covers almost 1/6 of the territory of Armenia, which was a Soviet republic prior to the dissolution of the USSR in the early 1990's.

The talented content creator johny kondakjian photography brings us this excellent drone video from the Asian republic of Armenia as it celebrates its annual Vardavar festival.  With roots that pre-date the establishment of Christianity in Armenia during the Antiquity, Vardavar is celebrated by dousing one's neighbors with water.  Created with a combination of drone and ground camera footage, the video was filmed in the Armenian capital city of Yerevan.  Yerevan is considered one of the oldest continuously-inhabited cities in the world.

As the first nation to convert en masse to Christianity, the republic of Armenia is home to a number of famous monasteries.  One of them is Arakelots Monastery, which is located in the northern province of Tavush, in the chain of mountains known as the Lower Caucasus (which runs roughly parallel to the main Caucasus range).  Not to be confused with a now-destroyed monastery of the same name in Turkey, Armenia's Arakelots Monastery dates to the 13th century.  Check it out from above in this drone video by johny kondakjian photography.
