Lake Sevan is a wonderful place to visit when you come to Armenia. A peaceful and beautiful nature that could take your breath away... birds are so friendly and can actually stop in the air to eat... see photos down

During our long drive from Tbilisi we stopped here for a rest, it was so peaceful, hardly anyone around, our driver stopped at one of the many fish shops lining the lake road, the smoked fish was amazing such delicate flavours, highly recommend a visit.

This place never gets boring. I've been there a few times, and each time the experience is as magical as ever. A definite place to see in winter as well as in summer.
