Welcome to Jermuk - the source of health and youth !

This splendid piece of Armenia was loved by many our outstanding classical writers, such as S. Khanzadyan, W. Saroyan, P. Sevak, S. Kaputikyan, M. Shahinyan and others.
Marshal I.Kh. Bagramyan while having his rest in "Ararat" wrote: Djermuk is an admiring place, you can't even imagine anything like that. It's impossible to describe its disposition. You can explain something orally, but in written form you should be at least Raffi to draw the nature so skillfully... Climat here is wonderful, and the scene of Zangezour mountains induces something energetic, powerful... "
And here is M. Saryan's opinion:" Djermuk is my beloved corner of Armenia. It lies on the plateau, surrounded by the mountains with rich forests and woods. Wild beauty and freshness of this place with its green shadow gives refreshment after Ararat valley drawn in the burning sun".
