Sharambeyan Street in Dilijan from below.
Location

Dilijan (Arm: Դիլիջան) is a city in the Tavush region of Armenia. Called by locals the "Little Switzerland" of Armenia, it is a worthwhile place to see, and spend the night. The forested town has some great examples of traditional architecture of the region and is a brief trip to the beautiful monasteries of Haghartsin and Goshavank. Sharambeyan street near the bus stop has been preserved and maintained as an "old town Dilijan", complete with craftsmens workshops, a gallery and a museum. The cool green forests are a nice contrast to Ararat Valley, especially in the hot summer.

Public Transport to Dilijan

Take a marshrutni from the Pjhishkakan Hamalsaran (Medical University) on the corner of Abovyan and Korion to the upper Avtokayaran. From there you can take a marshrutni headed to Ijevan that will stop in Dilijan on the way.
