The true Dilijan experience...
In the 1800s, the age-old Armenian city of Dilijan was known as a blossoming center of culture, commerce and cuisine. In order to enjoy the region's picturesque landscape, wealthy vacationers from Tbilisi, Baku and beyond, flocked to Dilijan in increasing numbers, paving way for the town’s international culture. In 2004, Tufenkian began restoring the historical district (Sharambeyan Street) of modern-day Dilijan, preserving the 19th century architecture which you can experience today. The intricately carved balconies typical of 19th century Dilijan display the region’s historical love for fine woodwork. Old Dilijan's Esayan museum recreates a typical 19th century Dilijan home, from household textiles to hand crafted musical instruments common to the region.
Tufenkian's Ananov Guest House gives you a chance to enjoy Dilijan in native luxury. The high vaulted ceilings, understated handmade chandeliers and intricately detailed handmade carpets of the Old Dilijan's Haykanoush Restaurant recall a typical Dilijani dining room.
On the streets of Old Dilijan, visitors are immersed in the finest culture of an earlier time. Specialized workshops and studios sell jewelry, clothing, carpets, ceramics and woodcarvings, arts and crafts all revived with Tufenkian’s renovation of the historical district.
Old Dilijan Complex also offers a separate picnic area, which you can rent and enjoy a day outdoors with your friends and family. The area has barbeque facilities with plates and cups provided by the complex.
