The Amberd Fortress, Armenia

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor and drone pilot Alex Avsharov created this magnificent drone video of a famous Armenian fortress.  Amberd (which translates roughly to "fortress in the clouds") is in the Aragatsotn Province, which covers the west-central portion of this former Soviet republic.  The fortification was built in the 7th century AD.  Amberd played a key role in the centuries-long struggles between the Turks, Armenians, and Mongols, although it was abandoned in the 13th century and now sits in a ruined state.
