"Goris" Goris by MalenaN

Goris Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 34 photos

Goris is a lovely town situated in a valley in south Armenia. In the town there are many traditional stone houses with balconies and arched windows. In one of the stone houses there is a museum over the writer Axel Bakountas. Unfortunately it was closed both times when I passed. Another site I didn’t get a closer look at was Old Goris where caves carved into the hillside once were used as stables and shelter (but I saw the similar site Khndzorsk outside Goris).

Goris is on the way to Iran (but still about 5 hours from the border) and Nagorno Karabakh. It is a good base if you want to visit Tatev.
