Compared with previous years, this year more Armenians visited Nagorno Karabakh during the holidays. This was reported to the correspondent of “Haykakan Zhamanak” by the head of the department of Tourism adjunct to the Government of NKR, Sergey Shahverdyan.
According to Shahverdyan, only the foreigners visiting Artsakh are registered and the statistics of Armenian citizens visiting the country is not on the record. Despite that, according to him, the number of Armenians visiting the country this year was higher than in the previous years. This is supposed to be due the fact that the resort centers in Artsakh compared with the ones in Jermuk, Tsaghkadzor and in other places are cheaper. Another important factor is the people’s desire to visit the country to admire the magnificent beauty.
