A new tourist map of Nagorno-Karabakh takes into account all the tourist routes and sights of the unrecognized republic. The map will be provided free of charge to tourists in Stepanakert and Shushi, as well as in all historical and cultural sites, reported the Ministry for Culture, Youth Affairs and Tourism.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in 2017, the number of foreign tourists visiting Nagorno-Karabakh increased by 40% in comparison with 2016.
The creation of the map involved students with the support of designers from Russia and the United States, reported Koryun Khachaturyan, the head of the TUMO Centre. According to him, tourists have a high interest in visiting such cities as Stepanakert and Shushi.
"In Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), there are more than 4000 monuments from different epochs, including the Stone Age and the late Middle Ages. They are of historical and cultural value," said Nzhde Yeranyan, an employee of the Nagorno-Karabakh Tourism Department.
