"Vanadzor" Vanadzor by MalenaN

Vanadzor Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 23 photos

Vanadzor is a town situated in northern Armenia, in Lori region. It is surrounded by green hills and is built on the banks of Pambak River. Many of the buildings here are built of the pink stone, so common in Armenia. In the outskirts are some big factories, like an ammonia plant.

I haven’t spent much time in Vanadzor. In 2003 I changed buses here, going between Yerevan and Alaverdi, and spent some time at the bus station. In 2006 I stayed a night. I arrived too late to visit the museum, but walked around, went to a restaurant and an Internet café.

      Thank you for visiting my page Aleksandra! Vanadzor is not really a tourist destination, but I think it was an interesting place to stop in for a night, before travelling on.

      Armenia is on my future travel list quite some time and it is nice to have opportunity to read more about it and here.

    This seems to be a good off the beaten path stop on the way between Tbilisi and Yerevan. I like the look of your room and love all those bus photos.

      It did feel very off the beaten path, but I like that. Thanks for visiting my pages Holger!

    Very descriptive and interesting account of your adventures via bus and the guest house. I enjoy personal accounts very much because they take me step by step...very realistic.

    I admire the way you travel to these (to me) really off the beaten path countries! Too bad the 'cheeseburger' and accoms did not work out perfectly, but you seem to have taken them in-stride! Beautiful pics as always.
