During the period from 189 BC up to 387 AD Artsakh was the tenth province of the historical kingdom of Armenia. Today it got the name Artsakh – “Nagorno-Karabakh”.
The word “Nagorno” (Нагорный or Nagornyj) is Russian for “mountainous.” The name “Karabakh” first appeared in Georgian and Persian writings from the 13th and 14th centuries. The name “Karabagh” means “large garden” that in general almost exactly defines this region.
Now Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is a de facto independent state with the main cities of Stepanakert, Shushi, Askeran, Martuni and Mardakert.
The capital city is Stepanakert. The country’s cultural center is Shushi.
The nature is very rich and beautiful in Artsakh. The flora and fauna, upland and foothill regions, thick forests make the whole panorama more fascinating.
The territory of Nagorno-Karabakh is rich in natural resources like zinc, lead, copper, gold, coal, and various constructions. Artsakh is home to several mineral water springs with high composition of iron. And the waters of these springs are used for medical purposes.
In 2005 archeological excavations discovered the historical fortress of Tigranakert founded by king Tigran The Great of Armenia ruling in the first century. The fortress town is now open for visitors.
Stepanakert – The Capital City
Stepanakert, capital of Nagorno Karabakh Republic is 345 km away from the capital of Armenia, Yerevan.
The first mater plan of the city was designed in 1926 by the talented architect Al. Tamanyan, the main architect of the Armenian capital.
The monument “We and Our Mountains” welcomes visitors at the entrance to the city. The monument is the symbol of the land of Artsakh. The statue is also known among Armenians as “Grandmother and Grandfather” due to its appearance. There is also a small museum near the main open market, where you can try local specialties like Zhingalov Hats, mulberry raisins, mulberry vodka and other tasty treats.
The main square of the town with a Hotel Armenia, Parliament building and a popular park are a good place to see the locals strolling in the evening. The national museum of art in Stepanakert will help to get acquainted with the customs and culture of the Mountainous Karabakh.

Artsakh is famous for an unusual phenomenon. In the village of Skhtorashen there is an unusual plane tree. Together with the monument “We and Our Mountains” it became the visiting card of the land of Artsakh. It even got a passport in 1900s and had a paid guard to protect the huge and everlasting tree.

The tree again recently got a passport according to which the age of the unusual tree is 2000 years old.
According to ancient sources, the creator of the Armenian alphabet and the first Armenian teacher passed by this tree to go to Amaras to fulfill his sacred mission.
This huge plane tree has been hit by the thunder many times which resulted in the appearance of 44 sq. m free space, equal to a modern flat of three rooms. The perimeter of the tree is 27 m with a height of 54 m, equating to a 15-story building.
This amazing tree has several doors. A man on horse can easily enter the tree through the central entrance. From spring till late fall the leaves of the tree are large and dark green. According to specialists the tree drinks 4.5 tons of water. Its shadow covers an area of 1,400 sq m.
The tree with a hundreds of years of history behind is a must see spot in the Republic of Nagorno Karabagh.
