View over Vank

Vank is a village de jure in Azerbaijan, but de facto controlled by the unrecognised Republic of Artsakh. It is home to Gandzasar Monastery.


Get in[edit]

Get around[edit]

Vank is a small town that is easy to walk around. To get to nearby areas, such as Gandzasar Monastery, the best method is to call a cab.


Gandzasar Monastery




  • Van Gogh Restaurant at Hotel Eclectica is an option for dinner. It has a very large menu, however only a very small number of items are actually available.


Mountains beyond Gandzasar


  • Hotel Tsovin Kar, +374 97235072.
  • Hotel Eclectic. A hotel built by a Russian-based Armenian businessman, who was born in Vank, in the shape of the Titanic. Contrary to past reports, Hotel Eclectica offers both Wi-Fi and alcohol, although the Wi-Fi is often broken. There is a swimming pool at one of the hotel "decks". Nice rooms from 8,000 dram. 15,000 dram for a room with a king-sized bed and a twin bed..

Stay safe[edit]

There is a taxi driver who waits outside Hotel Eclectica offering rides to nearby sites. Do not enter his taxi, as he charges double the local rate for rides, and demands a ridiculous amount of money (250,000 dram) for a return trip.
