Byurakan Observatory Reviews & Ratings
Interesting place, especially in autumn and summer. I have seen planet "Mars" there firts.))
Interesting place. There is excursion for 40 minutes. During the tour you can see Saturn, Jupiter, the Moon ... Telescope 120 mm.
During the daytime it is rather uninteresting unless you're really fan of telescopes and would like to have a peek at the one which at the time of construction in 1977 was worlds 7th largest optical telescope.
Nice place, but a little old and not very croudy
Interesting place to learn about Armenian contribution to astronomy. We had a quick tour offered by a very enthusiastic scientist.
